Bon Jovi: Highlights from Richie Sambora’s week with Craig Ferguson

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora was featured last week as the first house band in the history of The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Sambora was on hand to promote his third solo album, “Aftermath Of The Lowdown.”

Richie began the week playing the program’s theme live with Ferguson, before rocking up the nightly “Tweets and Emails” jingle.

Sambora played a song each night, beginning with his current single, “Every Road Leads Home To You,” followed by other tracks from the new album. A version of Bon Jovi’s smash “Wanted Dead Or Alive” was featured on Thursday, while Sambora closed the week with Ferguson handling vocals on “Sugar Daddy” from the new release – listen closely for the riff from Led Zeppelin’s “How Many More Times” as the song draws to a close.

Other guests joined in with Sambora and the band for the show’s opening theme, including Larry King (!), Eddie Izzard and Denis Leary.
