Our favourite guitar god turned fashion designer Richie Sambora was interviewed backstage at the UK launch of White Trash Beautiful. Of particular interest to Bon Jovi fans will be this part...
Five new songs on the Greatest Hits before Christmas, huge Europe stadium tour in 2011, and a new musical project for Richie. :)
Here he talks more about making music with Nikki Lund and potentially distributing it with the clothes, as well as a possible reality TV show...
I have no idea if those ideas would work or not, but it's definitely thinking outside the box which is something I feel Bon Jovi the band lacks a bit in its marketing approach for the digital age.
Anyway, you can watch the whole series of videos along with Hath's commentary on her blog. It's actually quite fun hearing Richie talk so passionately about clothes. He also talks about Ava, who modelled White Trash Beautiful at LA Fashion Week.
Also, Jon Bon Jovi & Friends played at a charity function (AT&T National) in Philadelphia yesterday (I think it was June 30 locally)... cheers to Lorenza Ponce and Jeff Kazee for the set list:
