    Have I got an CD for you! Check out Richie Kotzen's "Intergalactic Fusion Experience" and you'll find a whole new respect for the guy who fucked Rikki Rockets girlfriend.

    This disc is chock full of odd times, scary scales, inverted melodies and great voicings. It's all instrumental, except where Richie sings along with his playing. Gregg Bissonette provides some of the most eye opening drum work I've ever heard him play. His kit sounds soooo good it's maddening. Jeff Berlin takes up a few tunes on bass, which needs no explaination. (ok, just one...Holy Shit!)

    But Richie really surprised me. Here I thought he was some wanker who couldn't even hold a shitty job in Poison, but actually he is seriously studied on this project. It's obvious upon first listen, he has done his homework, recognizing everything from Miles to Edward in his playing.

    This is fusion at it's finest. Get this CD today, tomorrow, but no later. Go to amazon if you have to. Just give it a listen! I wouldn't steer you wrong.

    Warning: Fusion is not for everyone. There is some really complex stuff going on here, so beware!

    For any of you guys who don't already know this. . .RICHIE KOTZEN is a BAD-ASS guitar player. He's got serious blues/soul chops and a killer voice. Anybody who's seen him live can relate. He's definitely NOT a 80s one-trick-pony shredder.

    Oh yeah! It's the shit. It's not necessarily new, came out late 90's. Maybe 96 or 97.

    Damn you guys! Don't recommend any CDs because then I have to buy them!!!
    And then I don't have money to buy a new guitar!

    Are we talking about the same Richie Kotzen who plays on the new Mr.Big CD?

    If we are I'm really surprised because I didn't like him at all on that CD.

    I'll check my dryer for my missing sticks too!

    I haven't heard the new MR.Big, what's it like with Kotzen? I have a feeling that the CD I recommended (highly) is nothing like Mr. Big. "Inner Galactic..." is fusion, mind bending, ass kickin, try and tap your toe to this, fusion!

    Honestly, I've got so many other bands on cue right now, I don't see myself getting Mr.Big for a long time if ever. I'm still curious, so give me a review!

    It doesn't work with Kotzen as well as did with Gilbert. The new Mr.Big album features too many ballads.
    IMO, only one song rocks; the opening song "Electrified" (Nice bass solo by Billy on that song).

    Judging by the last coupla of Big CD, I figured as much. Oh, well.

    If you need a Billy fix, try the new "Niacin" out. Billy's tone is out-of-this world. Like chocolate cake, covered in chocolate fudge, chocolate ice cream, and chocolate sprinkles. Whoo, boy is it fat!

    They also do a cover of "Mean Street" that'll get you off! Dennis Chambers on kettles, John Novell on B3. Worth every $!

    I've got the new Niacin CD. Billy truly is the king of bass guitar!!!

    He mentioned in the Guitar World interview (3/2000) that he has two more solo releases coming out this year. He'll sing on the other and the other one is all instrumental. Man, he's been real busy, four new albums in a year and a world-tour with Mr.Big!!!
