I went to see this guy last night at the Camden Underworld. It’s ages since I’ve been out in London and I had a great night. The area (and the people) reminded me of Neil Gaiman’s book, Neverworld.
Nevermind. it was a great gig: very crowded, very sweaty, very loud and very, very good. Before going along, I only really knew Richie Kotzen from his excellent 1994 album, Mother Head’s Family Reunion. Of course he started in Poison and was also in Mr Big. Either way, a great guitarist with phenomenal speed and some amazing stretches. He also has a fine blues-rock/soul voice.
