Playing for his lunch

Jon Bon Jovi in the Covent Garden piazza in London yesterday with his lead guitarist, Richie Sambora. Equipment for the impromptu event was set up in mid-morning and by the time the rock stars arrived just after noon in a grey Mercedes 2,000 fans had gathered. 'I thought we were going out for a cheeseburger for lunch,' said Bon Jovi before playing for half an hour. He was then ushered back through the crowd to the waiting car. The Bon Jovi group, who reformed last year for a world tour, appear on Top of the Pops today and have a greatest hits album out next month.
