Richie Kotzen

The Winery Dogs

BIOGRAPHY

After constant wood-shedding and gigging with local Pennsylvania area bands, Kotzen got his very first record deal with Shrapnel Records at 18-years-old and released his eponymous debut in 1989 which landed him the cover of Guitar World magazine. Kotzen reached a wider audience by moving to Los Angeles and signing with Interscope records in 1991. He has continued to record solo albums and in 2013 Richie joined forces with Mike Portnoy [ex-Dream Theater, Adrenaline Mob] and Billy Sheehan [Steve Vai, David Lee Roth] to form the powerhouse trio The Winery Dogs. Their self-titled debut would go on to sell over 10,000 copies first week and debut at #27 on the Billboard Top 200. In October 2015 the Winery Dogs released their second album Hot Streak.

I’ve been looking for a long time for a wireless that not only sounded great but was compact enough to live on my pedal board. Line 6 literally hit it out of the park with the G50. I’ve done over 100 shows with my G50 without fail and now with the new improvements made on the G70 I couldn’t imagine a more practical better sounding better built wireless unit.
