Famed guitarist Richie Sambora will perform as the house band for THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH Craig Ferguson. Sambora will play a variety of music from his solo career as well as from Bon Jovi, this week, Dec. 3 - Friday, Dec. 7, on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH Craig Ferguson (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

During a pre-taped cold open for the Friday, Nov. 16 episode of THE LATE LATE SHOW, Ferguson said to Sambora, “I thought it would be great if you could be the house band on the show, but not necessarily play the guitar. Just you, naked, playing a tiny little harp.”

Sambora responded, “You know what? I really love you. I really love your show and everything. I’m not going to be naked playing a harp. But I tell you what, if you want me to be in the house band, as long as you let me play a couple of my songs, I’m going to be good with that.”

“I don’t speak rock and roll!” Ferguson joked before exclaiming, “Yes, yes of course!”

In addition to providing music at the beginning and end of each segment, Sambora will perform full tracks off his third solo album, AFTERMATH OF THE LOWDOWN (released September 2012).

Richie Sambora has performed for sold out audiences as the lead guitarist for legendary rock band Bon Jovi. He has sold more than 130 million albums worldwide for both his albums with Bon Jovi and his solo work. Sambora’s three-decade career with Bon Jovi includes 11 studio albums, three compilation albums, one live album, one Grammy Award (plus eight nominations) and an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Previously, Sambora released two solo albums, UNDISCOVERED SOUL (1998) and STRANGER IN THIS TOWN (1991). His bandmates on AFTERMATH OF THE LOWDOWN include Aaron Sterling (drummer), Curt Schneider (bassist), Matt Rollings (piano), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (keyboard).

THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH Craig Ferguson regularly airs weeknights (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT) following broadcasts of the LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN on CBS. THE LATE LATE SHOW is executive produced by Peter Lassally and is a 2009 Peabody Award recipient.
