If you have never heard of  THE WINERY DOGS then you are seriously missing out on one of the sickest bands to come around in a long time! Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan and Richie Kotzen Make up this Trio of  A classic Rock type band.

Think Led Zeppelin meets Alice in Chains and SoundGarden with some Hendrix, Lenny Kravitz and Black Crowes influence. Some of the Former bands these dudes were associated with and played in, Mr Big, David Lee Roth, Poison, Dream Theater.

Billy Sheehan is in my opinion one of the greatest Bass  players to Ever walk earth and Portnoy plays with the same kind raw and energetic emotion that a young Neil Peart played with, And Kotzen Kills it on every song!

Also Vinnie Paul from HELL YEAH(formerly of Pantera) will be there too! AND fuckin YNGWIE F***ING MALMSTEEN!!!playing guitar to the breaks. If you have never heard Yngwie play , you haven’t Lived.  Seriously probably one of the top ten guitarists in History. He’s that good.

Top 10 Peter Criss Kiss Songs

Peter Criss will always remain one of rock’s most recognized and popular drummers. As a founding member of Kiss, Criss donned iconic makeup to represent a character and look of his own creation, and that duly transformed him, not just from mortal human to immortal superstar, but into a bona fide superhero in the eyes of many young Kiss fans. And because like their idols, the Beatles, the four members of Kiss made a point of showcasing each one’s unique musical talents — at least to some degree — on their albums, we felt it fitting to recognize the Top 10 Peter Criss Kiss Songs.

Top 10 Peter Criss Kiss Songs

cover_peter
10 ‘Hooked on Rock ’n’ Roll’
From: ‘Peter Criss’ (1978)
We start our list of Top 10 Peter Criss Kiss Songs with this relative standout from the drummer’s much maligned debut. Though it was released under the familiar Kiss imprimatur, alongside his bandmates’ similarly appointed, color-coded efforts, ‘Peter Criss’ already showed the growing creative differences — his love of classic R&B and romantic ballads and most importantly, a desire for more of the spotlight — that would push him out of Kiss.
dressed
9  ‘Getaway’
From: ‘Dressed to Kill’ (1975)
 We initially slotted ‘Dynasty’’s ‘Dirty Livin’’ for this spot … but then we came to our senses and swapped in the Ace Frehley-composed, Criss-sung ‘Getaway.’ Not that there’s all that much praise we can lavish on this solid but workmanlike tune from ‘Dressed to Kill’ — other than to say it’s not as helplessly hilarious as ‘Dirty Livin’,’ which featured a dated disco bass line courtesy of Gene Simmons.
8 ‘Mainline’
From: ‘Hotter than Hell’ (1974)
 Now here’s a modest, but undeniably lovable Criss-helmed album cut we can categorically endorse, taken from 1974‘s sophomore Kiss opus, ‘Hotter than Hell.’ No, ‘Mainline’ wasn’t smash hit material and rarely reared its cat-faced little head in Kiss’ live shows, but there’s a fetching simplicity to Paul Stanley’s opening riff sequence (clearly inspired by Free) that we simply find impossible to resist. Hear for yourselves…

7   ‘Baby Driver’
From: ‘Rock and Roll Over’ (1976)
 Peter penned this number himself with the help of perennial songwriting partner, Stan Penridge, and while it wound up overshadowed by another ‘Rock and Roll Over’ highlight we will get to further on down this list, ‘Baby Driver’ boasts an impassioned vocal that epitomizes Criss’ underrated, soulful style. In fact, you could easily make a case that the Cat was the best singer in Kiss, technically speaking.
alive
6     ‘100,000 Years’ [Live]
From: ‘Alive!’ (1975)
 Peter Criss’ skills as a drummer have been subjected to serious (and often unfair) abuse in recent years, but none of that can erase the indelible memory of his rock-solid, workhorse display of percussive prowess on ‘Alive!’’s definitive version of ‘100,000 Years.’ Even if you can hardly recall Criss’ understated contribution to the song’s original studio recording, but on ‘Alive!’ he sounded positively Bonham-like!
lovegun
5    ‘Hooligan’
From: ‘Love Gun’ (1977)
Another Criss/Penridge collaboration — this one from the excellent ‘Love Gun’ LP — ‘Hooligan’ was essentially cut from the same cloth as ‘Baby Driver,’ but arguably turned out even more infectious, and certainly more amusing, thanks to the hapless high school dropout described as its protagonist. The remaining thee members of Kiss seemed to agree, too, with Gene and Paul throwing themselves into the backing vocals while Ace bolstered the song with one of his magically simple, but perfect, guitar solos.
cover_hotterthanhell
4   ‘Strange Ways’
From: ‘Hotter than Hell’ (1974)
 If you find it a little odd that we’d place this oft-forgotten ‘Hotter than Hell’ closer at No. 4 on our list of Top 10 Peter Criss Kiss Songs, just keep in mind it’s a cult favorite of sorts, and has been frequently covered through the years by everyone from Big Four thrashers Megadeth, to Swedish death metal band Hypocrisy, to Norwegian avant-metal weirdoes Ulver. Acutally, we can’t believe the Melvins haven’t gotten to this one yet.
cover_rockandrollover
3 ‘Hard Luck Woman’
From: ‘Rock and Roll Over’ (1976)
  Perhaps no song (aside from the one you won’t be surprised to find in the No. 1 spot) has been more closely associated with Peter Criss over the years than this jaunty acoustic folk song composed by Paul Stanley — originally with none other than Rod Stewart in mind! But he wisely kept it for Kiss instead, handing it off for the Catman to sing as the first single from ‘Rock and Roll Over.’ This decision no doubt contributed to taking ‘Hard Luck Woman‘ (later covered by country superstar Garth Brooks) into the U.S. Top 20 and numerous international charts
cover_kiss_large
2  ‘Black Diamond’
From ‘Kiss’ (1974)
 You can crow all you want about ‘Rock and Roll All Nite,’ ‘Shout it Out Loud’ and ‘Detroit Rock City,’ but, for our money, larger-than-life Kiss anthems don’t get any bigger or better than the superb ‘Black Diamond.’ And who is it singing lead vocals on there? That’s right, Peter Criss — at least after the song’s composer, Paul, gets done quietly crooning the first verse and then cues Peter into action with a familiar “Hit it!” From that point forward, this cinematic epic about seedy inner city life is brought to life by Criss’ raw and bluesy delivery.
destroyer
1   ‘Beth’
From: ‘Destroyer’ (1976)
 Well, what did you expect? Long after each and every one of us is dead and gone (all of us except for the immortal Gene, of course, who cannot be “unmade”), Kiss’ biggest career hit, ‘Beth,’ will be soaring on sweeping strings across the radio airwaves, web streams, and whatever it is they invent next! Peter Criss’ signature love song may suffer from a little of that overplayed ear-worm syndrome, and it doesn’t even represent the trademark hard rock Kiss sound, sure, but it’s bound to live on as the man’s lasting legacy, and therefore was an extremely worthy choice to crown our list of Top 10 Peter Criss Kiss Songs.
