Bon Jovi guitarist to play at anti-drug forum

(AP) — Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora is drawing on his history of substance abuse in debuting a song at a New Jersey forum on drug abuse.

Tuesday night’s event is aimed at raising awareness about abuse of heroin and prescription painkillers along the Jersey shore.

Sambora is a New Jersey native. He says the song, “Lighthouse,” is about providing a beacon of hope to people mired in addiction.

He says he never did heroin but acknowledges other substance abuse. He says he’s clean now.

Sambora says drugs had nothing to do with his departure from Bon Jovi last year. He says the band tried to do too much too soon and he needed a break from the pace.

Sambora says he expects to rejoin Bon Jovi but “there’s no time frame.”

    Woe unto him! the child of this sad earth,
    Who, in a troubled world, unjust and blind,
    Bears Genius—treasure of celestial birth,
    Within his solitary soul enshrined.
    Woe unto him! for Envy’s pangs impure,
    Like the undying vultures’, will be driven
    Into his noble heart, that must endure
    Pangs for each triumph; and, still unforgiven,
    Suffer Prometheus’ doom, who ravished fire from Heaven.

  7.
