Re: James Kottak
James is no stranger to those into hard rock.
He first became "famous" with platinum rockers Kingdom Come back in the late 80's. Their first two albums were produced by the legendary Keith Olsen and James quickly became his number session drummer. Therefore, James got to drum on many albums of which No Sweat's self-titled album and Wild Horses' "Bareback".
He also played with MSG and Warrant amongst others.
I recently seen him live in Nicosia, Cyprus with The Scorpions. I really do not like them but I went for James. Very solid player with a heavy groove a la Bonham. Great showman !
