Guitar virtuoso, Richie Kotzen continue to showcasing his musical productivity as early in 2018, he already premiered a new single along with its music video entitled ‘The Damned’, that was first unleashed via guitar player magazine website before eventually making ways via the guitarist’s official Youtube channel on January 25. The new track seemingly is a sign of an upcoming record this year, which unfortunately up til now still not much details being shared by the axeman/singer himself apart from that something will certainly arrive sometime soon.
The song itself has that classic Richie’s bluesy-rock soulful kind of tone with that slight of western element in the intro/riffs part making it sounded really intriguing. Making things more interesting, the singer/guitarist was also shot playing with a Fender stratocaster instead of his usual telecaster, which albeit might not be considered much by the musician himself, but it certainly catch the eye of many aspiring guitar players out there. Moreover, the new track itself is a certified kick ass rockin’ song with excellent sound, guitar playing, quality vocals and very groovy hook as well.
Guitar lovers will also enjoy how smooth Richie plays on this track starting from the intro riffs up to the technical yet well composed solo part which just fits well with the atmosphere of ‘The Damned‘. As for the music video itself, it’s once again shot in such professional manner with fine quality though there’s no particular back ground story being implemented as it simply showing the Winery Dogs’ lead vocalist/guitarist slaying on the new single with his lovely start along with his band mates. Overall, it’s another fine bluesy rock track that should entertain music fans, notably guitar heads all over the world who are still keen on checking out quality music from masterful musicians including, Richie Kotzen.
