    This collection of southern boys are not the most original band in the world. They’ll never be accused of being the most musically gifted fellas in the world. Certainly, no one will ever listen to them and think, “wow, that’s really cutting edge music”. To the contrary though, release in and release out, the same thought comes to mind

    Sequels to albums, at least in my listening experience, are generally poor. The two that immediately jump to mind for me are Rob Zombie’s HELLBELLY DELUXE 2 and Meat Loaf’s BAT OUT OF HELL 2. Both releases were pretty lame, and garnered attention solely because they were named after much more historic releases in their creator’s career.

Images: Richie Kotzen, Interviews, CD Reviews, Pitriff, News, Poison, Mr. BigRICHIE KOTZEN has regretfully cancelled his shows planned for later this month in New York City, Long Island, Baltimore, and Redondo.

"Since I came back from Europe I have been struggling with my voice. Last Saturday's gig in San Juan Cap was a vocal disaster.

I thought it was fatigue from the brutal schedule in Europe however the voice is getting worse and now I am having pain even speaking.

Today I went to my doctor in Beverly Hills. He is an ear, nose, and throat specialist.

I was concerned I may have nodes. 16 years ago I had nodes... twice... 2 separate surgeries.

Today he looked at me and it is very very bad news... My left vocal chord is hemorrhaged, bruised, and bleeding.

The bottom line is I need to be on total voice rest for the next 3 weeks. This means no singing and limited talking.

I explained I had gigs next week and he told me I am the only singer he ever treated that wanted to talk about doing shows with this condition.

He explained that by trying to sing in this condition I would likely ruin my voice for good.

I am very sorry but I must cancel all shows for April.

The doctor assured me that if I rest and follow his advice my voice will return back to normal within 3 weeks from now.

Those of you who purchased VIP tickets will be refunded through paypal.

Sorry for this bad news.

Best Wishes,
Richie Kotzen"
