This SPECIAL EDITION Features Guitar Guru RICHIE KOTZEN live from the U.S. leg of his World Tour. Touted as one of the best guitar players in the world, Richie Kotzen also possesses a voice on par with some of the greatest rock/soul singers and is highly regarded as a gifted songwriter. Kotzen has built a remarkably diverse 20 year career as a guitarist, singer and songwriter. During that span, he not only built an incredibly successful solo career, but has also found himself writing, recording and playing live with a artists ranging from Pop/Rock bands like Poison and Mr. Big to Jazz/Fusion groups like Vertu featuring Kotzen and Jazz legends Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. Working with these artists provided Richie with a great deal of in-studio experience and the opportunity to tour the world, introducing him to an international audience. In fact, his immense popularity overseas led Kotzen to one of his greatest honors - opening act on the Japanese leg of the Rolling Stones’ 2006 “A Bigger Bang Tour”. A prolific songwriter, Richie's song “Stand.” written while a member of Poison, reached the top 20 on the Billboard charts and was the catalyst for the NATIVE TONGUE album reaching platinum status. While with Mr.Big, Richie also enjoyed another milestone, having his song “Shine” reach #1 in both Europe and Japan. Richie has just released his 20th solo album, entitled PEACE SIGN and is acknowledged as one of the top guitarists in the world! Kotzen is one of the few artists to be honored by Fender Guitar with not one, but two signature model guitars. The Kotzen Telecaster guitar has repeatedly been the #1 selling signature model guitar for Fender Japan. Cornford Amplification also honored Kotzen with his own signature series guitar amp which in 2005 was voted Amp of the Year in the UK. In 2009, Zoom released the Richie Kotzen Signature Edition effects pedal (the G2R), providing a diverse range of tonal solutions programmed by Kotzen himself.
