I was watching some youtube videos and Jon makes a reference to " Joan's baby boy, Richie Sambora" when introducing him for LYHOM, but I was just watching a video someone took of When We Were Beautiful, and if you look towards the back(kinda off towards the right) of the shot behind the barricade after the catwalk, you'll see 3 women. At the end of the song you'll see the first woman wearing a beige-ish looking shirt waving her hand to the music and right next to her is a shorter, older woman with gray curly hair and glasses. No I have seen what Richie's mom looks like. She is a fair amount shorter than Richie. I'm pretty sure this woman is her, and she's on Richie's side of the stage. And now I'm thinking that the woman right next to her on our right is David's mom. Because someone posted a pic on topix of both Joan and Flo (David's mom) sitting next to each other at the Live on Letterman thing. And they both live in NJ and she is taller than Joan so I think this is her, but I am pretty sure that the shorter one is Joan. She is the only older person that I can see that is sitting that close and is getting into the music.

(What do y'all think)

Aunt Loretta likes to be up close and right in the action. You'll usually find her in the pit or very close to the stage. An absolute jewel...and she still stands and sings and is rocking out for almost all of the show...even though she walks with a cane now.

She was right behind me at NMS #3..right on the outside aisle. When Jon came in to make his way to to the stairs, he saw her and reached out and grabbed her hand <3

That is just so adorable. That even after 28 years and that her son is almost 52, that she still goes out there to support Richie and get into his music.

Possibly, but I found and even better video. It is so adorable that she came to the shows. Shows you how much she loves her son.

(she is the shorter older lady right next to the asian lady right behind the catwalk. I'm not sure if anyone else is related. Someone said that Richie's Aunt Loretta was there along with some cousins, his assistant Denise, his friend John Titta, and Nikki. So those other people right next to her might be friends and family. I just think that is so cute. Her son is old enough to have an AARP card and she still goes to his shows and supports him like its his first.

I have a question. Has anyone seen Ava at any of the shows on this tour? Some people said they saw Dorothea and Jake at the MSG shows, and Steph and Romeo at previous shows this tour. Now I know that there is video footage of Ava at:

1. Bounce tour concert -


2. HAND tour concert - http://www.youtube.com/watch...

3. and there is footage of her on the WWWB documentary at the MSG show

I don't know if she was at a show during Crush/OWN because she would have been like 3.

So has anybody seen her at a concert or any other show this tour?

The taller lady next to Mrs. Sambora is Mrs. Rashbaum!

Ava was at the 3rd night at Meadowlands Stadium. She walked past me with her grandma :) My friend who was in the PIT that night also saw Heather, not too far from Keifer....

Sorry that's not David's Mum, that's Richie's mother's friend :) and I think the blonde lady is Denise Richie's assistant not Nikki

HEather was not in Meadowlands

Does anyone have pictures of Ava at the concerts or could they get pictures at the concerts she will go to. I just think it's cute that she is out there supporting her dad. I just think it would be cute to see it because I can't be at these concerts. If anybody has or can take pictures would be great. I always look at the pictures of when she is with Heather or Richie at events.

LOL!
Thanx!
I won't argue the Mrs. Rashbaum pic because I only met her once, and have a vague recallection at what she looked like...since I was soooo nervous standing next to David! LOL!
BTW, I do have a side view shot of Ava from the Meadowlands, but I will not post it in an open forum.
