Richie Sambora - The King of Swing

Richie Sambora is the lead guitarist for rock band Bon Jovi. Between 1990 and 1992, the band members went their separate ways for a while to refocus before writing and recording their next album. This time off also helped them determine where Bon Jovi would fit within the rapidly changing music scene upon their return. Jon Bon Jovi recorded a solo album, a soundtrack to the movie "Young Guns II". On his side Sambora first solo outing was "Stranger In This Town" in 1991, a blues-influenced album that was received well by many critics and guitar affectionados. Richie's life long dream came true when guitar legend Eric Clapton agreed to make an appearance on the album and played the detailed solo for the track Mr Bluesman. However, although the album featured all the songs of a highly talented song writer, it did not fare too well commercially which Richie later admitted was due to the fact that he was writing songs from an artistic point, rather than writing a radio oriented album. However, the album did consolidate Richie as a top rate guitarist, revealing a different side of him that was not widely recognisable during Bon Jovi's 80s heyday. His blues influences would later be present on some of Bon Jovi records as well, notably on 1995's "These Days".
