How anyone can say Kotzen can't sing, can't play and can't write is beyond me!

I've never seen him play live and must admit a friend of mine who has reckoned he was sloppy, but Robert have you actually heard any of Kotzen's solo albums?

'What Is', 'Something to Say', 'Wave of Emotion' and 'Mother Head's Family Reunion' are bursting with some of the finest songs I have ever heard. They are classy and performed with such emotion. I've never come across a musician as emotive in his vocals or guitar playing and writing who is able to experiment in any genre of music (blues, jazz, fusion,rock etc..) and do a pretty damned good job!

With regards to 'Native Tongue'. It's a huge departure from Poison's previous releases, the typical Poison fan would obviously be dissappointed due to the lack of throw away party type tracks, which up until then Poison were known for. From the start the Kotzen/Poison pairing just didn't seem to fit as they're both coming from completely different places. It resulted in a fairly good album and I would say if you feel it was completely down to one man that Poison changed so much, then obviously they never had any better ideas of their own. I think Kotzen did the best with the tools he had!!!

As for the new Mr Big 'Get Over It', granted it's not even close to their best, but neither was 'Hey Man'. I don't think you can blame Kotzen, as I'm sure Sheehan/Martin/Torpey are a forceful enough outfit to make the album they want to make and if they could have done it better I'm sure they would have!

Lastly (don't I go on!) judging how good an album is on sales is a little shallow I feel, as at the moment of writing I'd hazard a guess that the Spice Girls new album is the top seller!!!

Thank you and goodnight!
