Post Mr. Big, New Album
(flame suit on)

Source:
The Sheena Metal Experience
Interview with Billy Sheehan

http://latalkradio.com/images/Sheena-031010.mp3

Listen to the whole interview; Billy is the second main guest on the program. It is a free download.

From Holy Cow, the song that Paul plays the 2 solos on (Dynamic Exhilarator) is on there too.

Sheena talks a lot (it's like listening to Jenn-length posts), and the goodies aren't until the very end, so, just be patient and listen to Billy's wonderful tales of his time in Talas and the DLR band, his love of music and the bass, some of his bass jokes...

Hope you enjoy. :)

+ sorry this is like 3 weeks late. I didn't have a chance to listen to it until today.

For ppl who don't like to look for info too much Billy says it around 1h 47min 10s

INT: "So you brought Mr. Big together (...) and you're gonna do a new album..."
(...) "And the new album will have new songs?"

BS: "It will, brand new thingy"



Soooo - no more 90s Mr. Big songs and only brand new material? (or maybe a little bit of both)!

Either way, they got me already!

Update:
Video backup now provided!
It's only a minute and a half long, so you should definitely all check it out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEWKFRJUNN4

(it's, in a nutshell, Billy Sheehan reiterating what he said in the last minute or so of the Sheena Metal Experience interview, plus some stuff for the Official Mr. Big Fanpage on Facebook.)

+ Special thanks to Dewi for filming, and to Chacha for putting it in all caps and bringing it to everyone's attention.

Enjoy. :)

You snap a finger on the hand approaching the hand that you hit it with. Before you hit the hand you snap a finger on the hand that's going to be hit, and then you bring the two hands together hitting the top of the slightly a opened hand.

There's actually a scene in The Blues Brothers. Sorry for the bad explanation.

And thank you very much Jenn for the information.

Well any new Mr.Big albums are welcome :D

I don't think I mention that "Racer X/Paul Solo album instead", so this thread to gets corrupted

I'm about an hour late to this party, because I was busy with work. Eric Martin's newsletter went out this afternoon and here's the quote the Mr. Big fans were waiting for.

"Mr. Big begins recording or next album in September. Look for a world tour in 2011 to support it. I can't wait!"

Great timing on Eric's part: just last week this sort of thing was dismissed as rumor by a certain Jenn... LOL. (this time, she had a feeling that she was wrong, which is why she didn't delete any posts.) Hah - I'm going to have to get a few new recipes for crow! :)

(Some random guy cold-rolled me last week about this, and I said what I knew at the time which was that the world tour was a rumor. At that point, it was! Better to eat crow now, then get cussed out by band members for spreading a rumor, y'see.) We're all lucky that it's true, for lots of reasons: the main reason being that tours are so much fun - to watch, and to attend, if possible.

So, September it is. Between now and then is the next big hhmmmmm... :)

+ I forget how I ended up on Eric Martin's newsletter mailing list, but if it's as simple as going to his website and signing up, please do that. That way you guys can get the news firsthand and you don't have to read Jenn-length-posts to do so. :)

Here is an interview with Eric Martin, taken on his latest tour of Europe. The link was sent to me. He tells it like it is. The interview is in Polish, so GoogleTranslate, or Lamer, or both, will have to help if you don't speak native Polish.

I guess if you guys need more details about the new album, ask Eric.

It would be cool if Mr. Big toured North & South America and Australia on this new release. They got Asia and the Old World in 2009. It would be awesome if they'd do a few shows in their home country. :)

They pretty much talk about how there was only about 30 ppl at his concert in Poland, and how hard it was to get here (they would cancel all their flights because of that crash of a polish jet with all the highset politicians aboard). Then he talks a bit about differences between playin for thousands of ppl and in a club, and how prefers club gigs more. Then he says that they're plannin a world tour, dozens of concerts in many cities, and he finishes off with sayin that he has nothing done for the new album and he should start workin on it now.



That's my translation, haha :D

Bought the latest issue of classic rock yesterday, in one of its little news bite strips, it mentions something along the lines of the recently reunited Mr. Big going to work on a new album in Sept, in anticipation of a 2011 tour.
