Wow, I can't believe that it has been more than a year since my last post. A lot of things took my time in the past months and my music blog just had to take a backseat for awhile. But now that I have more free time, there's just no more reason for me not to bring this blog back to life!

*My favorite Pearl Jam logo: Alive

Today, I wanna tell you about a new band that I'm listening to. The band is called "The Winery Dogs" and is composed of three very accomplished musicians:

Richie Kotzen - guitar, vocals (former guitarist of Poison, Mr. Big)
Billy Sheehan - bass (bassist of Mr. Big)
Mike Portnoy - drums (ex-drummer of Dream Theater)

The songs in their self titled album are really rocking! I could also hear some blues music influences on some songs. I'm really glad these guys got together in this age of pop, pop, and more pop, rock music could use some push. The guitar sounds on this album are superb! Billy and Mike are incredible musicians but it's Richie Kotzen who really shines on this record. His singing voice and guitar lines are just amazing. I'm a big fan and if you're a serious guitar player like me, this record will definitely make you want to practice more.

Standout tracks for me are: "I'm no angel" and "You saved me". The album is available on Amazon or on iTunes. I really hope these guys do come over to play in the Philippines someday.

Keep rocking!
