Mike Portnoy,Billy Sheehan,Richie Kotzen: The Winery Dogs – track by track for musicradar.com
Mike Portnoy is a lot of people’s favorite drummer, Billy Sheehan is a lot of people’s favorite bassist, and Richie Kotzen is a lot of people’s favorite guitarist. But as The Winery Dogs, they very well could be a lot of people’s favorite new band. Yes, their self-titled debut album is that kind of winner.
“People are saying some pretty nice things,” Sheehan says, chuckling. “You gotta love that. I think what’s good about what we’re doing is, we’re not trying to do a supergroup kind of thing. I was already friends with Mike, and I was already friends with Richie. We had an idea of what we were getting into with this thing, and that chemistry came out in the songs.”
