    Hi, Any one heard anything about the plans for Billy Sheehan's bass playing future?

    Do you think he will start, or join a Rock band? (Can't see it).

    He has got to be getting on a bit now, so i could see him doing Niacin, Vai tours and clinics for the future. Maybe MR BIg will re-group? stranger things have happend. A lot of anger in the old MR BIg camp, I just wonder who really started it?

    Mr Sheehan is really a one of a kind........AWESOME!

    I think he's currently constructing a house built completely from Rotosound strings. He's gotta do something with them.

    He's currently in a band called Niacin. I highly suggest you check them out if your a Billy Sheehan fan. Very Jazz influenced. Its a drum, keys, bass trio.

    Dennis Chambers is a monster!!

    What a great role for Billy Sheehan to be in as well. I think he has really expanded as a bassist with this group.

    Yup, the DVD is nice, a little short and no bonus material though.
