Adrian Smith and Richie Kotzen release first song ‘Taking My Chances’

Occasional L.A. neighbours Adrian Smith and Richie Kotzen have today released ‘Taking My Chances’, the first song from their new collaboration, with a full album expected in 2021 through BMG.

Adrian told MetalTalk: “I think Richie and I complement each other really well. He is a virtuoso guitarist but he has got a great sense of melody – the whole thing just felt very natural.”

Richie said: “We found common ground in Classic and Blues-based rock – we both come from that mentality. We have been writing and recording together for the past year and I am ecstatic with the results.”

The song was recorded in Turks and Caicos earlier in the year.
