Sambora eager to teach Becks to strum

LONDON: Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora wants to give David Beckham free guitar lessons because he believes that the football star could translate his skills into music.

Sambora became friends with Beckham at a photo shoot last month. reports him saying, “Beckham is a good guy. He has done so much for soccer in the US. We both recently featured in the Father’s Day edition of a Los Angeles children’s magazine with our children.”

He added, “Most definitely Beckham should come and see me. I’d gladly give him lessons. I’d be privileged. He is such a big name and brought soccer to a different level and it’s now played in schools. It’s just a pity that he doesn’t get to play more as he’s been injured.”
