Mr. Big Live in Manila, Philippines 2011

For my first ever music post, I would like to talk about the concert I'm really looking forward to this May 2011, it's Mr. Big Live in Manila! Oh yeah! And I thought I'd never see the classic lineup perform live.

It's happening on May 10, 2011 8:30Pm at the Araneta Colosseum and I'm definitely there! :)

Anyway, ever since I was a kid, I've always liked Mr. Big. I remember back in high school, I bought cassette tapes of their albums (click the album pictures below to listen to their songs) "Lean into It"
Lean Into It

and "Bump Ahead"

If you haven't heard of them before, they're the band behind hits like "To be with you" and "Wild World". Their guitar player, Paul Gilbert, is one of my idols and inspired me in a lot of ways. My favorite Mr Big song is "Green Tinted Sixties Mind". The guitar parts on that song are really awesome! I remember trying to play the intro sequence back then and getting really frustrated coz I just can't nail it. Well things have changed now my friend and I'll never stop practicing the guitar 'til I have the chops of Paul Gilbert. I'll talk in detail about Mr. Gilbert in my next music post.

Anyway, Mr. Big has a new album out titled "What If" and I really hope you do check it out:

What If

Lots of nice songs in it, I specially liked "Undertow" and "All the Way Up". Check out the video for "Undertow" below:

sayang di ako makakapunta. I remember dati, nung bata pa kami (or 1st yr HS) kinakapa pa namin lyrics ng 'Lean into It'. Weeks after, nakita namin na tinago pala ng ate ko yung lyric sheet na kasama ng tape...
