Veteran American hard rock trio the Winery Dogs feature the talents of vocalist/guitarist Richie Kotzen (Poison, Mr. Big), bass player Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth, Mr. Big, Steve Vai), and drummer Mike Portnoy (co-founder of Dream Theater). Inspired by '70s classic rock, as well as the collected outputs of their prior projects, the group first got together to test the waters in 2012, but it didn’t take long to gel. After a ferocious yet fluid series of recording sessions, the newly minted band put the finishing touches on their eponymous debut, which hit the streets in the summer of 2013. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
