UPDATE: Richie Sambora Keeping Busy Without Bon Jovi

UPDATE: Richie Sambora Keeping Busy Without Bon Jovi

Perth Amboy, New Jersey born guitarist Richie Sambora may be keeping a lower profile, but he has had no problem keeping busy since he stopped making music with another New Jersey native.

Sambora, a founding member of Bon Jovi, left the band early in 2013.

He will be playing tribute shows to his friend, the late solid body electric guitar pioneer artist Les Paul. MusicRadar reports that Sambora will be performing July 22 and 23 at the 170-seat Iridium in New York. “To say I'm looking forward to these shows is a huge understatement," said Sambora. "We shared so many experiences and talked about... you name it, anything and everything.”

Sambora is also working on a new album with Australian female guitarist Orianthi. He met Orianthi through friend Alice Cooper, and performed with her on some Australian tour dates. “She’s a great songwriter and a great singer, but not many people know that,” Sambora said, according to Yahoo Music. “I think most people think she’s Michael Jackson’s sidearm and I’m Jon Bon Jovi’s side guide.”

Orianthi spent some time working with Jackson, and Sambora has also played European dates with Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, and Aerosmith. As far as being the side guide, Sambora says he holds no hard feelings toward former bandmate Jon Bon Jovi.
