Richie Kotzen: GIT appearance planned

Richie Kotzen Concert and Clinic Apr 15, 2010 :
On Thursday, April 15, the Guitar Program at Musicians Institute (GIT) welcomes a concert-clinic appearance by guitarist-singer-solo artist Richie Kotzen. With a gritty, hard-rock-meets-soul sound, the LA-based guitar-slinger has achieved international renown with more than a dozen solo album releases, festival performances, eight appearances on the cover of Japan’s Young Guitar magazine, and stints as lead guitarist for such major bands as Mr. Big and Poison.

During this exclusive clinic, Richie will take questions from students about everything from guitar playing to the challenges of launching a successful music career. He and his band will also perform songs from various stages of his career including his latest release, Peace Sign (autographed copies will be available for purchase).

Gannin Arnold: not from here

From the opening throes of Tim Landers’ pulsing bass and Jimmy Chamberlin’s tribal linearisms, it’s clear we’re on the march.
Gannin’s at the head of the line, setting pace with biting, weaving lines that rise, float, and then dive-bomb the Assembled. It’s an exhilarating rush and channeling of great guitar instrumentalists who’ve cleared this road:
The sweeping grandeur of Eric Johnson (“Blue Ships,” “America”). The blistering bite of Vai (El Nino). Satriani’s soaring lyricism and Jeff Beck’s rhythmic twists and occasional melancholia.
Through the duration and with minimal exception, Gannin remains faithful to the trinity of guitar, bass and drums.
And here’s the dirty secret: this is really a drummer’s album, as Gannin has assembled some of the most tasteful and assertive kit artists in contemporary music. Taylor Hawkins. Stephen Perkins. Simon Phillips. Pat Mastelotto and Tris Imboden, the latter whom turns in a furious performance on “1981.”
Drummers for both Jane’s Addiction and Mr. Mister on the same record? Indeed. This is not your average L.A. guitarist’s solo stroke.
