I’m listening to the new track as I type this. As you all may know, I’m a diehard Richie Kotzen fan, and so the new Winery Dogs supergroup (with Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan) has been something I’ve really been looking forward to…
So a few weeks ago we got a video of the first track off the record, Elevate, which we talked about here.
Hardworking guys as they are, there’s a new video out now!
It’s called “Desire” and you can check it out here:
It’s another solid number, but I think personally, I enjoyed Elevate just a little bit more because of the catchy, Mr. Big-esque pop chorus.
Desire features yet another quasi-fusion solo from Mr Kotzen, which is always a treat, but what I’m worried about is that the coordinated tapping pyrotechnics, which are a signature move from Billy Sheehan, may put off some casual listeners who don’t want to hear as much “shred” in their rock songs.
In any case, I’ll still be buying the album – I’ve got it on pre-order from Japan, hopefully I’ll be able to talk about the entire album pretty soon!
