Richie Kotzen,Billy Sheehan,Mike Portnoy: Power Trio Rising from the Ashes

Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan have tapped Richie Kotzen to be the guitarist/vocalist of their new project following the recent departure of John Sykes.

Although Portnoy and Sykes demoed a dozen or so songs at a Los Angeles studio last year, their vastly different work ethics and conflicting schedules were solely to blame for the dissolution of their collaboration. Portnoy explained on Twitter, "Sad but true... I tried my best to make it work... Me and [Billy Sheehan] couldn't wait around any longer... [Billy] and I are moving on and have already begun work with another guitarist/vocalist, keeping the original 'power trio' concept." more
