    Do you think he will ever play with a pick again or ? curious

    (related: After JB ditched the pick, scatterbrain sounds a bit different nowadays ;-)

    I think I have seen far too many Winery Dogs videos, and Portnoy is a bad influence. Just the same, he does not, or at least I have not seen him use a pick in his Live videos. IDK?

    Me either. Yeah the Winery Dogs are really really good but too much of them begins to grate.
    Probably the same with Ritchie's solo stuff but there is no denying his talent that's for sure.
    If I had money to burn I'd definitely try out his sig guitars and Fly Rig v2.

    Neal Schon has been on the pickless bandwagon. IMHO He should not be playing 16th notes, but O.K. if he is trying to imitate Jimmy Page with a pick. ha

    Many years ago, I saw Kotzen as a member of Poison.

    Even Richie couldn't save that band.

    :rolleyes:

    IMO, Kotzen is a great guitarist.



    Like many guitarists that are hired guns, Richie doesn't seem to stay in one place.
