    Richie Kotzen!

    This dude is cool! I just bought his 2004 release GET UP and it totally rocks. His voice is as good as any rock singer that i can think of and has plenty of soul or r&b infuence. The dude is as gifted as anyone i have heard in a while. I highly recommend this cd because its got a raw rock n roll feel and sound. go to www.richiekotzen.com and check out the music clips. Why this guy joined Poison the worst band in the world is totally wacked!

    I liked him in the last Mr. Big album a lot! He wasn't a good fit in Poison though, I thought that Native Tongue was their worst album.

    If you liked "Get Up" , then you should check out another one of his albums called "Slow". Every song on it is fantastic! Probably the best album I bought in 2004. Simply great. Great songs, great singing, great playing.

    I keep wondering why Richie isn't more popular....

    Damn I just found this thread. I LOVE Richie's playing and his voice is bad ass too. I've got a bunch of his shit with Greg Howe thanks to 51501984 (Rich you da man!)

    I also picked up Get Up the day it came out and really liked it. Forgive me for admitting that I like a Poison song but his solo on Stand is very good. Nice to see Richie get some love around here.

    Sounds exactly like Poison (sarcasm).

    Very good for a modern band. Thanks for the link.

    No problem Chris! Richie is an incredbile player! I suggest checking out his solo cds "Electric Joy" for some great instrumental shred mixed in with great meoldies and feel . "Slow" is probably my favorite cd by Richie , great song writing,singing and a great mixture of Hard Rock, hints of R&B and even a little Jazz. His two cds he put out with Greg Howe are awsome as well. It`s good to see his name mentioned on the forums cause Richie(along with Greg Howe) don`t get nearly the recognition they deserve!

    The only music that I dislike from Kotzen is his "work" in Mr. Big....that has got to be the worst crap ever. Paul Gilbert was awesome in that band...Rich didn't fit IMO.
    I am not talking about the shitty ballads, just talking about the rocking tunes from the band.
    Solo: Kotzen is a shredder in many ways. I like his bluesy/soulful voice and his guitar playing. Kotzen is a great guitar player that is underrated, maybe another guy in Favored Nations?
    Just go for it!

    I really like that Mother Head's Family Reunion album that he did. Very bluesy with R&B mixed in there.

    The guy is a scumbag. He joined Poison for instant exposure and to fuck Rikki Rockett's fiance. Karma goes gonna be a bitch for this guy someday.
