Regrets for Paul Gilbert

Postby Fakeblue » Wed Mar 05, 2008 3:15 am

I'm happy about Paul success with MrBig, although I sometimes regret he got away from the thrash shredding path he took with Racer X, because GOD, that was a hell of a good band :

Yah Raser X was Original too.
But I reall think Paul just wanted a taste of Comercial success hence Mr Big and There is nothing wrong with that but I thought with that libne up it would be more rock and less pop .
I really hated them for that. I was really dissapointed with all the MR big CDs.. Thank god for Racer X :twisted:

I thought something terrible happen, thank goodness it was regarding something else as mentioned in the main post: I like Paul Gilbert and see him as more of a Solo music artists/and master Professor guitarist (his a teacher!) that lessons reaches the beginer guitarist to the more experience trailblazer. I find him extraodinary and enjoy watching his lessons on some of those Guitar World dvd's that comes with the magazine. 8O :o 8) Wow, he took one song and played it a dozen different ways...'amazing. So he started out in the band RACER X & Mr. Big: who knows maybe they may consider doing a re-union Tour one day :!: Peace.

I liked both equally as well. It is cool when a guitarist can step away from the shred and write a good song. Paul is awesome.

Mr. Big was an awesome band that stood out among most in the genre at the time. What planet are you guys living on?

I saw Mr. Big in 1992, in Memphis, when they opened for Rush on the "Roll the Bones" tour. It was by far one of the best concerts that I'vev ever been to. BOTH bands were awesome. And if you've never seen Paul Gilbert in action, you're truly missing something. That guy makes guitar playing look so dang easy... and I am a guitarist.

I agree with you Strat. When I heard Billy Sheehan and Paul Gilbert were teaming up I anticipated some insane collaborations. I bought the first cd and while the music was quality it just wasn't what i was looking for or expected. I don't blame them for going into the more commerical vein after all sometimes you have to cash in to keep doing the projects you really love. They made some good music whatever their motivation. Jon Oliva who co-founded Trans Siberian Orchestra uses that cash cow to finance his true passion for his band Jon Oliva's Pain. Sometimes a little diversity is good for everyone.

8O

Gilbert had decent success with Mr. Big. 300,000 sold of the 1st one, 1 million of "Lean into it", 200,000 of "Bump Ahead", #27 spot for their cover of the Cat Stevens tune,"Wild World". "To be with you" #1, Top 20 for the 2nd single, "Just take my heart". 3rd was released after the Grunge movement, but hit #82 on the charts. "To be with you" #1 during the Nirvana/Pearl Jam movement. Good success. Mid 90's they unraveled. He achieved what lots of musicians/bands only dream of; kudos to him. And of course, awesome guitarist!!

Saw them 03/94; amazing show!! He and Billy and those drills for their solos!! Wow!! Never will forget!!! Peace... :)
