The next book in my 'A Casual Guide...' series is out now. Here are the details:
STRANGER IN THIS TOWN – A CASUAL GUIDE TO THE MUSIC OF BON JOVI'S RICHIE SAMBORA
BY NEIL DANIELS
PUBLISHED BY CREATESPACE
WORLDWIDE RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 21, 2014
A Casual Guide To The Music Of Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora
Richie Sambora is the leading force in one of the world's most successful rock bands but there is more to his career than Bon Jovi, which he helped steer to success through twelve studio albums from 1983 to 2014. In many respects Sambora is one of rock's most underrated guitarists even though many of his riffs are world famous.
Stranger In This Town not only touches on Sambora's profound role in Bon Jovi but also details his pre Bon Jovi bands, Message and Shark Frenzy, as well as his collaborations with such icons as Cher, Desmond Child and many others. This book is also about the solo music of Richie Sambora and explores his three solo albums, Stranger In This Town, Undiscovered Soul and Aftermath Of The Lowdown.
From the author of the acclaimed Let It Rock – The Making Of Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and Bon Jovi Encyclopaedia, Stranger In This Town is the first
book to exclusively explore the music of one of rock's greatest guitarists. Stranger In This Town celebrates Sambora's musical legacy and offers titbits of information and trivia about his career as well as a biography, discographies, a timeline, reviews and tributes from leading musicians and music writers. There are also many previously unpublished live photographs of Mr. Sambo.
Stranger In This Town is essential reading for Richie Sambora fans.
