    Mr. Big's new tour.

    Billy's rig starts at about 16:50. Paul Gilbert's rig opens the video.

  3. I'm not into their music, but I can certainly geek out on tone and toys, so that was way cool.

    And what a couple of cool, down to earth guys too!

    Billy is a great guy, and Paul equally awe-inspiring!

    That guy is ridiculous. As I've said before, very few are of his caliber. The guy is amazing and his playing is so fluid and precise.

    I love when he throws on the Pog for an up octave, then plays the keyboard part of Baba O'Reilly!

    I saw this a few days ago. Both of those guys are just cool people, and unbelievably talented musicians.
    Having said that, i never cared for Mr Big lol

    I really liked their first 3 albums, but then they changed producers and it seemed like they were told by the record company to record more FM ballads.

    The previews of their new record that gets released in July, sounds like their older stuff. They brought back their original producer.

    The last 2 records were great too. I agree on them having too much ballads in the late 90's. Even Billy thought so. And altough Ritchie Kotzen was an excellent replacement for Paul, I'm super happy they restarted the original band in 2009.
