The Jason Becker Not Dead Yet 2 Concert will take place 7 p.m. January 23 at Slim's in San Francisco, California. The guitar-heavy bill will feature Steve Morse, Uli Jon Roth, Richie Kotzen, Gus G of Firewind and Ozzy Osbourne's band, Michael Lee Firkins, Jude Gold, Gretchen Menn and more.
While the Internet hasn't been all kind to the music industry, one of the major upswings of the rise of the digital age is the increased interaction between fans and musicians that social media channels allow.
From an early age, Richie Kotzen was tagged as a virtuoso, a guitar hero, a shredder. All true, of course, but with time, Kotzen proved to be so much more — a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter who can play at the speed of light one minute and then do a complete turnaround with an acoustic guitar and ballad.
