BON JOVI star RICHIE SAMBORA enjoyed a break from rehab on Wednesday (26Sep07) night to join his bandmates at the Recording Academy's New York Chapter's Honors show. The rocker checked into the same Utah rehab facility as Lindsay Lohan last weekend (22/23Sep07), just three months after completing a detox stint at the UCLA Medical Center to treat alcoholism. Sambora plans to complete his latest stint of rehab treatment this weekend (29/30Sep07). Speaking to FoxNew.com's Roger Friedman, he said, "I'm sober, I'm good. I'm going back just to finish (rehab treatment) this weekend. I figured, why not get to the bottom of this and really understand it?"

Sambora has in fact never looked better — tanned, relaxed, in good shape. Maybe we should all try rehab.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (September 24, 2007) — Richie Sambora has headed back to the Cirque Lodge rehab center in Utah.This just a month before his band, Bon Jovi, is set to go back on tour.“Richie is continuing the on-going treatment he began in June,” his publicist tells Access.The New York Daily News reported on Sunday that Richie is now a next-door neighbor of fellow patient Lindsay Lohan.

Bon Jovi Rehab

The bad news is that Richie Sambora is reportedly back in rehab. The good news is he won't likely be the only celebrity in group therapy as he's checked into the same facility as teenybopper star Lindsay Lohan. Maybe she'll talk him into appearing on her next album? Are maybe they'll ride off into the sober sunset together on his "steel horse"?

Richie Sambora Lands In LiLo Land

Being a rockstar is tough.� There’s the long hours, crazy travel schedule and constant partying.� And it appears that Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora needs some time to cool off.

The living guitar legend took to the Cirque Lodge that’s currently housing Lindsay Lohan in order to get himself sorted out.� Apparently his stint at the UCLA Medical Center back in June of this year didn’t quite take.

Though he’s well past his heyday, Sambora only recently started having problems with addiction. In fact he claims that his excessive drinking began after he divorced Heather Locklear and his dad died.

He told press, “I was just drinking too much and I needed to get my life together… It’s been a rough year. I’m still in therapy and stuff like that, but it’s good. I’m great. I feel fine.”

And a few months later, Sambora is back in rehab, this time hoping to kick the habit for good.

ESPN did more tinkering.

It switched analysts. Joe Theismann is out; Ron Jaworski — who says he sees his niche as "the x's and o's, the football side of the game" — is in.

He'll join Mike Tirico and Tony Kornheiser in the booth. Michele Tafoya and Suzy Kolber will be on the sidelines.

ESPN also added three people — Emmitt Smith, Bill Parcells and Keyshawn Johnson — to the studio team. For the second half of the opening doubleheader, it will have three Mikes (Greenberg, Golic and Ditka) in the booth, with Bonnie Bernstein on the sidelines.

A new version of the Hank Williams Jr. theme song has been taped, this time backed by Brian Setzer, Richie Sambora, Gretchen Wilson and more.

That new theme kicks in Sept. 10, during the busy start to the season. The schedule includes:

Thursday: A half-hour "NFL Kickoff" concert at 8 p.m. is followed by the Saints-Colts game. The Saints were featured last year amid post-Katrina interest, but Madden says the focus now is on football. "I remember asking . . . "Is this just a feel-good story?' Then they came into Dallas and played the Cowboys (and) I said, "They are the real deal.' "
