Richie Sambora joined drug forum at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River

Ocean County Prosecutor Joe Coronato hosted a drug forum hoping that it would help to crack down on the heroin epidemic there, with the help of a big name which never fails to draw some attention. The event took place at Pine Belt Arena in Toms River and everything was made lively with live performances by featured guitarist Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi.

While the forum was taking place, he performed a few songs and though his performances he was looking forward to reach out to the young people so that they could receive the message about the use and abuse of drugs and how dangerous they can be for one’s life. He conveyed his musical message of "Lean on Me" with the help of the Manchester High School choir.

Richie Sambora said that he has been speaking up against the abuse of drugs because he can relate to the entire thing and he’s conveying these messages after some experience. And he surely made his point clear when he said "Don't do it. Case closed...You know, nobody gets out alive.”

The host Joe Coronato stated that "We're not going to arrest our way out of it.” DARE vehicles and other displays were set up at the site as county officials hosted one in a series of events meant to educate and communicate and Coronato was glad that he had involved a rock star in this because people tend to accept the messages more willingly when they are coming out from one of their own idols.

Dolly Parton - Live At The O2, London

BRITAIN-ENTERTAINMENT-TUSSAUDS-WHITNEY-HOUSTON
Country legend knows how to throw a party...As cavernous and soulless as the o2 is, once Dolly Parton takes the stage and warmly welcomes us into her world, it’s all of a sudden snug. We may as well be sat cross-legged in the dust by the porch of the Parton’s wooden shack, where young Dolly would sing her little heart out – with a tobacco stick and a beans can for a microphone – to anyone who would listen (mostly her younger siblings who were too young to crawl away, she jokes). For an ev ...

Dolly Parton just proved herself to be the highlight of Glastonbury 2014, performing an utterly remarkable and incredible set on the Pyramid Stage.  Not only did she pull one of the hugest crowds of the weekend (really, it was rammed - moreso than Metallica, Arcade Fire and Lana Del Rey combined), but she pulled off a set that will certainly go down in Glastonbury history. "Howdy you guys", beamed Parton, clearly humbled by the near-religious reception she received. ...
