American musician, a lead guitarist with "Bon Jovi." The smashing success of the group has made it possible for him to have a $750,000 beach bungalow in Laguna Beach along with a home in New Jersey, where he can mingle with the rich-and-famous on both coasts.

In February 1989 Sambora met 15-year-older Cher and they became a sizzling item by June. After three years together, they split in 1992.

By May 1994, he and Heather Locklear were a news item with the media covering their public foreplay in October gossip rags. They officially were engaged on 9/10/1994, both with frantic schedules that took them from coast to coast. They married in a civil ceremony 12/15/1994 at Sambora's Rumson, NJ home, and married formally in Paris two days later.

(He released a solo album entitled "Undiscovered Soul" in 1997. The release was his first solo album in seven years, with many of the 30 songs written during Bon Jovi's 1996 tour through Europe.)

On February 2, 2006, his wife announced that she had filed for a divorce. The news reportedly came as a huge surprise to him. A month later it became clear that he was in a relationship with Denise Richards but they split in March 2007. They still have great regard for each other and when his dad died in April , Richards flew to NY to lend her support. He announced on June 19, 2007 that he had completed a detoxification program at UCLA Medical Center. On April 22, 2008, the musician was sentenced to three years’ probation and three months of alcohol awareness classes after he pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge. He was charged for his behavior on March 25, 2008 in Laguna Beach, CA.
