Guitarist Richie Kotzen (ex-MR. Big, Poison) will issue a new album called "Peace Sign" this fall. The exact release date for the effort will be announced soon.
Richie Kotzen'd first-ever live DVD, "Bootlegged In Brazil", was released in Europe on December 5, 2008 via Frontiers Records.
A perfect complement to the recent CD-only release "Live In Sao Paulo", "Bootlegged In Brazil" is the first official live performance to be made available by the acclaimed guitarist/vocalist.
The DVD features a performance from Kotzen's South American tour in 2007 and includes classic tracks from his repertoire: from the rhythmic labors of "A Love Divine" to "Go Faster" (off Kotzen's last studio album, "Return Of The Mother Head's Family Reunion") and the great "Doin' What The Devils Says To Do".
Richie Kotzen's sound is influenced by such classic artists as Bad Company, Free, early Van Halen and Cream. They are the inspiration for his songs, but having deep Philadelphia roots, Kotzen tends to combine rock with the Motown influences he heard as a kid, offering the fans a soulful and timeless approach to the music.
This live performance features Kotzen touring band with Johnny Griparich on bass and Dan Potruch on drums.
