Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy CD – due for May release!

The news we’ve all been waiting for – when is the insane super group comprising guitar/vocal master Richie Kotzen, “lead bassist” Billy Sheehan and prog-god drummer Mike Portnoy coming out??



Well, here’s the news from Richie himself:

Some other good news is that the new cd with Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy and I is officially finished!
We are now in the mix stage of the process and Jay Ruston is doing an amazing job with that!

I can’t wait to share the new music with you! We are hoping for an early May release date for the CD!


There you have it! I’m so excited – it’s about time Richie got involved in some high profile projects again, so that he can get some of the recognition he sorely deserves.

Here’s a comedic “interview” with Richie (totally staged of course) which fits his zany, whacky sense of humour:

Edit: It’s official, the name of the trio is… The Winery Dogs.
