Richie Sambora Releases New Single Paying Tribute to 9/11 Heroes

Dangerbird RecordsBon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora apparently is making good use of his time away from the band.  The rocker has just released a new solo song that he co-wrote with longtime Elton John lyricist Bernie Taupin, a heartfelt 9/11-themed tribute titled "Engine 19."

The tune pays homage to the sacrifices of the members of the New York City Fire Department and as well as to other first responders around the U.S.  Musically, "Engine 19" is a stripped-down ballad featuring only Sambora's vocals, strummed acoustic guitar and piano.
