Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora (pictured above rocking out with Jon Bon Jovi in March 2011) checked himself into rehab back in April and could not join his bandmates on their European tour. But now TMZ is reporting that Sambora is out of rehab in the Los Angeles area and heading to Croatia to meet up with the band.
Sambora tells TMZ he is “doing excellent.”
This was Sambora’s third trip to rehab to battle with his addictions to alcohol and prescription painkillers. But an insider tells the Daily Mirror that he has “made brilliant progress.” Bon Jovi will be touring in Europe through the end of July.
We’re glad Sambora seems to be doing better and hope the Bon Jovi gang can rock out together this summer all over Europe.
