Happy birthday to Paul Gilbert!
This video is from 30 years ago: in the MuchMusic studios with Eric Martin and Erica Ehm, talking Mr. Big! “Thank God for Pat Torpey!” they say as the praise the (late) great drummer. Lots of ground covered here:
- Formation of the band
- The blues and their roots
- Touring as a “long camping trip”
- Singing lessons and demonstrations!
- More carrots, celery and radishes
You’re gonna love this. Also note, it’s one of my few non-Power Hour recordings.
BONUS: Today’s appearance on Tim’s Vinyl Confessions’ Mr. Big special
