What an exciting time this is to be a Mr. Big fan. Whoever thought that the original line up would be back to rock our faces off? It was very fortunate that a few years ago they reunited, released an album and went on tour. We are even more fortunate to enjoy a brand new release called ‘The Stories We Could Tell’. Let’s face it the combination go songwriting and musicianship in this band is matched be so few bands in that genre. One of our favorite guitar players is Paul Gilbert. What do you get when you combine the killer guitar playing of Paul Gilbert and add the monstrous bass playing of Billy Sheehan? We cannot even explain it because it is that great. These two musicians have literally played with the best of the best in their careers and once again prove why Mr. Big is a force to be reckoned with.
Listen to songs like ‘The Monster in Me’, “I Forget to Breathe’, ‘The Light of Day’ and ‘Cinderella Smile’ and take note of how well Gilbert and Sheehan work together. Not many bands have a guitar and bass player combo that work with each other in unison. In fact this style is rare for a basic rock band. Again, a band that is a force to be reckoned with. It is also nice to hear more melodic and softer songs like ‘Gotta Love The Ride’, ‘East/West’ and ‘The Man Who Has Everything’ because they prove that Mr. Big as a band can still write and compose wonderful songs with meaning.
All in all it is another great rock album that is released by a great band. We look forward to catching them on tour. Digital Guitar Player proudly endorses ‘Mr. Big The Stories We Could Tell’ as a must for all guitar players in 2014.
