Did you guys notice that when Pat starts singing in "Smoke On The Water" his voice is a lot like Dio's? It's incredible.


Just check out this vid of Dio singing with Deep Purple.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xHqV2FKZqo



Maybe it's not so similar between this version and how Torpey's singing, but I think he sounds a lot like Dio in overall (especially in Ronnie's late years when his voice went low).

Here's a 5-part interview with Mr. Big (which starts right off *hilarious*) from Oct. 23. The whole band is involved.

On this channel:

edit: The Ring Of Fire song... priceless. LOL.

Thank the musical deities that Mr. Big had the professionalism and patience to deal with this sort of unprepared interview in a happy, "jam show" sort of way!

Like you pointed out - Paul's guitar robot quote (said in-character) was side-splitting.

Don't forget the cat fight:
Billy said that Spooky (his cat) was the greatest cat in the world.
and then Paul's follow-up:
"Oscar is also the greatest cat in the world, so there's going to be a dispute."

and the killer quote for the whole interview...
Eric - "Pat and I have children... not together."
I LOL'd for a good minute and a half... the way he just deadpanned that. Priceless!

Interviewer: "are you guys always so happy?"
Band: "No."
LOLOL. Totally shut that one down hard.

In between the tomfoolery, Eric snuck in a little gem. The title of the next album should be "cats and kids". If you ignore the joke title... what next album? ;)

Pat also said that they'll keep going, to play shows for audiences wherever they still want to see Mr. Big, so... The Americas and Australia await!

edit: a treat, from the last show for 2009, in Seoul:

There's a rumor going on here in Brazil that Mr. Big is coming down here on April.

Maybe this will give you US guys some hope as well!

To all the South American dudes:

Mr. Big is really CONFIRMED to be playing in Brazil on 2010. The show is supposed to be in April.

So, if some of you guys from the other countries don't have them coming over there, I really suggest coming to Sao Paulo to see the gig.

Yup.

True about Brazil. A friend of mine is bringing them there.

Im making some business calls to have them in Chile as well. It seems like the shows will take place in Southamerica on the first 2 weeks of April so far.

No news about othe countries as far as Im concerned, but it should be really a matter of time till they confirm the band in Argentina...

If they don't come to North America, I will be truly surprised...I mean even if Mr. Big wasn't as popular here as they were in other places around the world, I would say there is still a decent fan base that would definitely come and see them....i just hope if they do come here, its not just NY and LA and then their gone...

Allan's Music, who has hosted clinics for Paul and Billy in the past and present - said this on Twitter. "Billy Sheehan bass clinic SOLD OUT and something HUGE to announce soon"

It seems a good / healthy rumor indicator. You know, Mr. Big in Australia... that sort of rumor.

Take it with a grain of salt, but coupled with Billy mentioning they hadn't yet visited Australia and all these April 2010 rumors about Mr. Big being on tour in South America... it's ust something to keep in mind. ;)

It could be something as boring as a holiday music gear sale, or it could be the announcement of co-sponsoring one of the r. Big shows in Aussie land. Who knows.

OK, I have 2 things to add...

I got an e-mail from Eric Martin's site, and in that e-mail it said...

"We're on a break right now while everyone works on prior commitments"

(w00t for those of us looking for some Paul solo stuff, or Racer X, or with Freddie Nelson, etc etc etc!)

and also it said something like 'I can't wait to get back to working with my brothers'.

SO... that's 2 bits of good news. Fuel to the 2010 tour continuation rumor, and fuel to the prior-commitments-crew. ;)

BTW the break he's referring to is November - December 2009. It is not very long.

I'd go and see Mr. Big again if there was a lot more audience interaction, like this...

Lucky bastard!

Adamo has some sort of inkling about the South American tour rumor:

http://paulgilbert.com.br/site/mr-big-p ... ca-do-sul/

It basically said what Gustavo said, but with this important addition - a timeline. The first 2 weeks in April eh? That won't conflict with Musikmesse?! Or is this another one of those weeks of insanity (crazy travel) in the making.
