    I picked up a couple heavier releases from some bassist this week as well....Billy Sheehan's 'Cosmic Troubadour', and Brian Bromberg's ' Metal' The Billy Sheehan album has a lot less singing than his last one, and more great bassplaying. The whole last third of the album is instrumental....a good thing ;)
    Brian Bromberg's album might surprise some people....it's quite heavy with his Piccolo bass taking the spot of a heavy guitarist. There is also some very aggressive slapping from Brian as well :bassist: It's been been a good release week for bass albums :cool:

    I enjoyed Compression, it was a unique departure from what he'd done in the past. I'll have to go look for this new one.

    I'll never forget the time I saw Mr Big at a very small club and was at the edge of the stage the whole night. Paul Gilbert hit a note at one point that made everyone say ouch. Billy was just fantastic, never ceases to amaze me. My chest was sore after that show...

    Today I picked up a album by a guy named Johnny Hiland, it's produced by Steve Vai, and has Billy Sheehan on bass. It's like a country blues cat with Billy playing in a different style than usual.......but he still sounds like Billy kicking a$$ :bassist:

    If you go to Billy's website, he talks about a new album he and Steve are working on which was more challenging than anything he's ever done. It should be a killer...
     
  7. I know Bromberg gets bashed a lot here, but I dig him. I think he has done some great things (outside of his great chops). I think he is fun to listen to.
