Holy shet, Richie Kotzen?

Who is this dude? This vid has all the burps and farts of a live performance but still shows this dude absolutely pwning this song. Drummer and bass player are funky as hell, too. What sorcery is this!

Oddly enough, he used to play guitar for Poison... lol Phone Post 3.0

In 1991, at age 21, Kotzen joined glam-metal band Poison, co-writing and performing on the album Native Tongue. This album produced two top twenty singles which Kotzen co-wrote, "Stand" and "Until You Suffer Some (Fire & Ice)". In late 1993, he was dismissed from the band for having an affair with drummer Rikki Rockett's fiancee, Deanna Eve.


Dude replaced Paul Gilbert in Mr. Big for a while..you have to be phenomenal to pull that off. His style is also completely opposite, almost all legato driven Phone Post 3.0

I'm not a metal head, or a prog-rock guy, but I love the way this guy plays - the jazz and blues influences probably? (I'm also not a musician.)
