Sambora Becomes A Yardbird

BON JOVI star RICHIE SAMBORA has realised a lifelong dream by dressing up in 1960s attire to play one of his musical heroes on TV.

The guitarist will play THE YARDBIRDS' ANTHONY TOPHAM in an upcoming episode of US series AMERICAN DREAMS - and he's delighted with his retro look.

He says, "They asked me if I would represent a Yardbird. The show's great and I look like JOHN LENNON.

"It was a gas to do that. Growing up in the 60s for me, I believe, was the renaissance of music and I got the chance to learn music when JIMI HENDRIX, CLAPTON, the BEATLES, SIMON + GARFUNKEL, BOB DYLAN and all those greats were around."
