34:33 Download May 29th

Mr. Big is on their “Big Finish” tour and makes a stop in southeast Michigan at District 142 in Wyandotte on May 30th. 

Mr. Big From The Start

Eric told me the entire story of how the band started after his solo career had seemed to fizzle out in the late 80s. He spoke of meeting Billy Sheehan, a guy who he didn’t know about. It was interesting to hear how the pieces came together.

New Mr. Big Drops On July 12th

Eric had a lot to say about the upcoming album. Their 10th record Ten drops on July 12th. He told me how he and Paul recorded demos for all the songs. “We mapped it out perfectly,” he said. Eric talked of starting from scratch on this album and the reason for doing so.

Jay Ruston produced this album, as Eric explained to me why they went with the rock producer. “I liked what he did with the last Winery Dogs album…that record was slick”

I also grabbed a couple questions from some of his solo bandmates, PJ Farley and Jason Hartless. Those made for a few laughs.

Fun conversation with Eric for sure! I cannot wait to hear the full album.
