    I ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ Kotzen so much. No effects, all talent.

    Also, a very apropos message, in these tenuous times.

    I remember when I first heard “Stand” on Poison’s NATIVE TONGUE, gave me chills, and this performance? Even more chills, with no frills!

      Not sure if you knew, but Kotzen said he auditioned for Poison with that song. He wrote it, but they changed some of the lyrics.

      While I appreciate Poison’s version with hat powerful choir, I much prefer the original (aka-this version).

      Yep, I knew that. And I agree completely, loved Poison’s version, but I love Kotzen’s solo version even more! Nothing at all against Bret, but I think it’s more powerful when the writer sings his own original song, in most cases, and this is one of them.

      Plus, as much as I love, and adore Michaels, Kotzen’s vocal prowess is on another level.

      D 🙂

    Great version of a great song! I had forgotten that Richie K. wrote that song. I actually like both the Poison version and this version equally. Poison’s version with the choir and electric guitar has a real gospel feel to it, while Richie’s acoustic version sounds real personal and raw. Richie is a great vocalist and guitar player, and I hope he gets back with the Winery Dogs soon to start on their third record!
