The Essential Richie Kotzen doesn’t hit stores until September 2nd, but you don’t have to wait until then to hear new tracks from your favorite axe-man. VH1 has a sneak peek of Disc One from the double-disc greatest hits collection, which features three never-before-heard tracks. Crank the speakers on your Macbook, press play up above, and bust out that air guitar.
The guitarist has rocked for over thirty years, bosting nearly 20 solo albums and kicking the rock quotient up to 11 in groups like Poison, Mr. Big, and most recently, The Winery Dogs. The first disc of this career-spanning retrospective centers on studio classics, as well as unreleased songs “War Paint,” “Walk With Me,” and “Lie To Me.” Disc Two takes a deeper dive into his catelogue, unearthing acoustic performances and rare bootlegs. Take a listen to Disc One above!
