Richie Sambora: Condo Maniac

4/26/2008 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richie SamboraYou thought Richie Sambora's recent DUI arrest was his biggest problem? Now he's doing gigs at condominiums. Sounds like he's not wanted dead or alive!

Sambora appeared at the Las Olas River House in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He used the downtime between Bon Jovi gigs (they are currently on tour) to play the highly-prestigious gig. Guess there were no mall openings yesterday.

Sambora was popped for DUI last month and pled no contest to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher earlier this week. There had been reports that prosecutors were going to file child endangerment charges, but they never did.

Common TMZ House Parties are an honor and a privilege to host or participate in. Where have you guys been...this ISNT NEWS just you being uneducated to the underground juke joint style of playing for your fans directly... In the south tons of artists and host houses scramble to have house parties. What an Honor to have someone from Bon Jovi Jammin' in your living room. It gets back to Folk roots and that lends some street cred to him and I'm sure he knows and feel he needs that right now. You guys just gave him some street Publicity and this is helping him get back in the "saddle". Ask any of his fans if they'd kill to have him play some music in their home? I bet not one would say no. BTW if there is a ticket price to get in a house to see the artist or the host house pays the artist ita be a crazy $ making night.... and the dough goes right in the artists pocket...NO ONE GETS A CUT!!!!! I knew a guy who paid Lucinda Williams $500,000 to play in his back yard.....so who's laughing all the way to the bank.......Hmmm?

The lounge at the Holiday Inn is next. I hope you saved some money. Remember Thomas W. said, "You can never go home." He was talking about you.

He's Boring now    

freaking sell out...another jimmy buffett type giving private concerts to filthy rich and filthy liberal and probably just filthy kinds of people.

hey richie is your kid strapped in her car seat? What a phony baloney that whole Jon Bon Jovi thing is...he's mr clean and has mr drug as his lead guitarist. Ok Jon, whatever you say---dont cheat on your wife or abuse drugs or acohol, but hire those who do.

I'll be glad when this era of "music making" (ha-ha) is over. Bunch of New Jersey rip off artists...they're like how Yoko Ono described Paul McCartneys song writing ability.....cat/hat mad/sad smile/mile happy/crappy....ad naseum.

I absolutely love Richie Sambora! I am listening to his solo CD from about 10 years ago called Undiscovered Soul as we speak. The guy is one of THE most TALENTED songwriters/performers in the country! JBJ and he have written some incredible music together. If he wants to play at some obscure place with an acoustic set, then please Richie...come to my house!! I love your music and support you 100%.

Attention to those on the judgment and critic committee: Those in glass houses should not throw stones. WE all have our demons, its a shame that his just happened to be broadcast to the world when it really isn't anyones business what he does in his personal life. He is a fantastic father and good person and I pray that he will get the help and control over his relationship with alcohol.

Richie, we love you in Texas!

Leave him alone already. Yeah....he did something REALLY stupid (incidentally, why did his girlfriend get in a car with him and the kids when she knew he'd been drinking? Shouldn't she also take responsibilty?).
Doesn't mean the man doesn't have talent. His solo stuff is incredible...so let it go.
