If you could play as well as Billy Sheehen I'd pay for your airfare and accomodation!!!! Billy is a genious, and best bass player I've ever seen!

Compression?

Agreed. It's one of the best, if not THE best song by the band...

interesting video for "Stay Together", but the best stuff is the rock stuff imo... i think in all honesty they got to a stage where they were producing a lot of very average material, whereas bump ahead and lean into it for me are 2 albums where i think 90% of it is superb, and that even the other 10% is good/ok

they are all such amazing musicians, performers but for me billy sheehan stands out, and i love their version of Shy Boy

I was a big fan in the early 90's as well... My fave songs are Addicted to that rush, Had enough, Anything for you, Daddy-brother..., Voodoo kiss, To be with you, all songs on Bump Ahead (great album!), Goin' where the wind blows, If that's what it takes and Dancin' right into the flame. I also found an album with them from 1999 called Get Over It, but I haven't really listened to it. Paul Gilbert isn't on it...

I really haven't listened to any of their stuff with Richie Kotzen on it, I'm not sure if I want to To me Paul Gilbert was the only real guitarist for the band... I might give it a shot tho if I find the album in a shop somewhere.

As it is I've managed to lose my Lean into it, and I'm desperate to listen to it right now...

Mr. big are one of the best! Their songs are awesome. I love specially the first two records (the ones with Paul Gilbert!). I love songs like 'Never Say Never', 'Alive And Kicking', 'Vodoo Kiss', 'Addicted to That Rush',...great band!
Their last album, Actual Size, with Kotzen was very good. And i recommend everybody the dvd of their farewell tour!it's amazing!

I didn't see them live but i got the chance to see and talk to Bolly Sheehan when he came to Barcelona with Steve vai. Big player, bigger person!
