During a recent conversation with Radio Futuro, Eric Martin mentioned that there’re coming big times for Mr. Big, suggesting that there will be an activity of sorts from the band in the future.
Here’s what Martin said:
“If you asked Paul [Gilbert] he’d go, ‘Oh, well. I don’t know. Never say never.’ And same thing, Billy [Sheehan] would go, ‘Well, you know, it would be a good idea.’
”But I’m here to tell you that there is a rumor. Did I start this rumor? I don’t know. I believe that there are big things coming. I keep saying that, and I want people to believe me that we’re not down for the count. It’s not over. I think we’ve got some things to do.”
If he will reunite with the group, Martin also said:
“I miss Mr. Big; I really do. I’ve been waiting for Mr. Big to maybe do something for the last four or five years now since Pat Torpey passed away. And even though I’ve been doing it for years and years, incorporating Mr. Big. songs in my set and playing my solo stuff, I like playing the songs of Mr. Big.
”The band, we’ve been on kind of a permanent hiatus for the last four years, four or five years, and I miss playing Mr. Big songs. People ask me to play solo stuff all the time, but the majority of people love the songs of Mr. Big, from the hard, fast rockers to those little spluffy, warm and fuzzy ballads. They love it. So I give the people what they want.”
