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.
