Remember the huge buzz we got awhile back about the supergroup featuring Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy?
Well, they’ve christened themselves The Winery Dogs, the album is slated for release in Japan in May… and here’s the motherfrakking video for their first single!
So far I’m liking it – it has the touches of technique and groove that are very RK, and obviously Sheehan and Portnoy are players of such a level that they have no trouble at all keeping up. It’s funky, catchy, and recalls the best days of bands like Mr Big (well, as we all know, Richie WAS in Mr Big, so no surprises there) but with a bit more of a rock edge. RK let’s rip with one of his signature solos which is almost jazz fusion.
I’m pretty excited to hear the rest of the album when it drops in May! Wonder when the rest of the world will see it.
