is a career defining piece of work.
At his day job, Sambora is the legendary guitar slinger behind some or rock's biggest riffs. He's seen 35 million faces and rocked them all and continues to do so. This year, on Bon Jovi's Because We Can - The Tour

However, unlike any other, he has a unique gift for setting stories to song. It's those stories, the stories of Sambora the man, that he has put to song in Aftermath of the Lowdown
On Aftermath of the Lowdown
, Sambora takes a major departure from his previous major label releases - Undiscovered Soul
(1998) and Stranger In This Town
(1991) - returning to his roots with a vital and visceral album of raw rock power. It illustrates the ups, downs and triumphs that Richie has experienced over the past several years as he has dealt with his personal struggles in the public eye.
"This is the truth, the lowdown," he says. "And after you speak that truth, there's always an aftermath. A lot has happened in my life, good and bad, over the last ten years, personal stuff that's cathartic for me to get out. Really, these are all things that could happen to anybody. But I happen to also be in a band with the biggest concert tour in the world, and the glare of being in the public eye."
Odds are that tour is stopping in a city near you soon. You can hear the stories behind thetours and the rest of Richie's life on Aftermath of the Lowdown
