BILLY SHEEHAN Talks THE WINERY DOGS’ III Album On The Iron City Rocks Podcast; Audio
February 3, 2023, a month ago
In Episode 498 of the Iron City Rocks Podcast, Billy Sheehan returns to talk about the Winery Dogs’ new album, III, which is available now. Billy shares the writing process he has with Richie Kotzen and Mike Portnoy, getting his live rig ready to kick off their North American tour February 15 at the Palace Theatre in Greensburg, PA, the dynamic of playing as a trio and reflects on his touring experiences opening for Geddy Lee and Rush.
2023 will not be the year to let sleeping dogs lie. Not when it comes to The Winery Dogs, who are kicking off the new year with more new music from their forthcoming and aptly named third album, III.
Out now on the band’s Three Dog Music label (via Burnside Distribution/The Orchard), III follows in the paw steps of their first two albums, once again being self-produced by the band - Richie Kotzen, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan - and mixed by longtime band associate Jay Ruston.
Fans wanting to order the album and enter to win a custom Fender Richie Kotzen Telecaster guitar can go here. A vinyl edition of III will also be forthcoming in just a few months.
