Richie realized that this full-size guitar - because it folds - is a perfect way to bring music to our fighting forces.
Richie decided to personally purchase 100 guitars from Voyage-Air, and then set up a website where active military could register for a chance to win one of these breakthrough instruments. Recently, he began distributing them to the lucky winners.
Yesterday, Richie appeared on the TV show "EXTRA!" - we were able to get a part of that clip: and you can click to see it below:
This Friday, August 19, Richie Sambora meets with the troops at Camp Pendleton Marine Base in Southern California, to personally thank our fighting forces for their bravery and sacrifice... and to deliver dozens of these 100 revolutionary guitars, all personally signed by Richie.
The TV Shows "Access Hollywood" and " EXTRA!" will be onsite with cameras rolling - check your local listings for the exact time of the show.
We'll have more info and pictures next week... stay tuned!
