(Classic Rock) Richie Sambora has recalled his audition for Kiss, just before he landed the Bon Jovi role that made his name - and he now claims that he didn't want to join Paul Stanley's band in the first place.

He tried out as potential replacement for Ace Frehley in 1983, but he already suspected he wasn't the right man for the job. Sambora tells Metal Express Radio: "I didn't really know what I was doing back then, and I didn't really want the gig.

"They wanted someone to replace Ace, but I think they wanted someone who worshipped them. I liked their music - but I wasn't into them in a big way." Citing his preference for Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, B.B. King and others, he adds: "I just thought it would be a good thing to go along and give it a go. I didn't feel like wearing any of their makeup, that's for sure." Read more here.
