Dannielynn Birkhead, 15, Offered Free Guitar Lessons From Richie Sambora After Kentucky Derby

Dannielynn Birkhead had the time of her life at the 2022 Kentucky Derby.

Dannielynn and Richie posed for a photo together, as seen below, when Dannielyn brought her own guitar and stood front row at Richie’s performance at the Barnstable Brown Gala. The pair bonded so much that, according to Dannielyn’s dad Larry Birkhead, Richie offered the teenager free guitar lessons anytime she visits Los Angeles.
