SCORPIONS Drummer's KOTTAK: New Song Posted Online

KOTTAK (formerly KRUNK), the band featuring singer/songwriter/guitarist Jimmy Ratchitt (a.k.a. former KINGDOM COME and current SCORPIONS drummer James Kottak) and his wife Athena (sister of MÖTLEY CRÜE's Tommy Lee) on drums, has posted a new song, "Daddy You Are My Star", on the group's MySpace page.

Athena wrote the lyrics and Jimmy Ratchitt composed the music to the track, which will appear on KOTTAK's upcoming CD, "Scream With Me".

Athena dedicated this song to her father, David, who was a Korean War veteran and who served the United States of America proudly for 20-plus years.

KOTTAK posted "Daddy You Are My Star" early as a special "thank-you" to all of the U.S. veterans and their families.

KOTTAK also includes Johnny Lucas on lead guitar and Price Vernon on bass.

With their debut CD, "Greatist Hits" [sic], and critically acclaimed follow-up CD, "Therupy", KOTTAK established itself as more than just a band with a spelling problem. Several tours of Japan, Europe, Mexico, and countless West Coast runs have yielded a reputation as a rock solid act.

Produced by Tommy Henriksen (DAUGHTRY, B.C. JEAN), "Scream With Me" is slated for release in early 2010.
