Richie Sambora would love to give Becks free guitar lessonsMay 26th, 2008 - 11:54 am ICT by admin
London, May 26 (ANI): Bon Jovi lead guitarist Richie Sambora has offered to teach footie ace David Beckham how to strum a guitar.
The 48-year-old rocker became pals with the Man U mid-fielder when they met on a photo shoot last month and insists that he would be privileged to give guitar lessons.
Most definitely. David should come and see me. Id gladly give him lessons. Id be privileged, The Sun quoted Sambora as saying.
Hes such a big name and brought soccer to a different level and its now played in schools. Its just a pity that he doesnt get to play more as hes been injured.
Beckham is a good guy. Hes done so much for soccer in the US. We both recently featured in the Fathers Day edition of a Los Angeles childrens magazine with our children, he added.
Meanwhile, the rock band including David Bryan and drummer Tico Torres is set to kick off its 22 date European tour, which began in Germany on May 22.
Richie added that he takes an astonishing 24 guitars on the road, the most expensive is 200,000 pounds.
My guitars are all different flavours, he said.
Its like having different colours of paint. Music is like a palette, but you paint with instruments like guitars. And different guitars give you different colours and shades, he added.
After winning multiple awards the rock band insists that their enthusiasm for the job never wanes.
Its in our blood. The joy of bringing something you come up with out of thin air is a joy. We have this arsenal of songs that are a fabric of peoples lives and we have the poise and knowledge to go out and make people happy, said Richie
Weve been together for 25 years but the touring experience gets richer. Every time we step on stage its an honour as we know were incredibly lucky to be doing what we are doing, added David. (ANI)
