Eric Martin of Mr Big

In 2009 melodic rock fans rejoiced when the original Mr. Big line-up (Eric Martin on vocals, Paul Gilbert on guitar, Billy Sheehan on bass and Pat Torpey on drums) announced their reunion to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their debut self-titled album.  A reunion tour in Japan followed but fans stateside were wondering if that would be it?

With so many years in the rear-view mirror the band decided to roll the dice on a new album.  The chemistry seemed to be there and with the help of producer Kevin Shirley the band was able to really get back to their roots with What If.., their first album together in fourteen years.  The album is a testament of their collective musicianship and was recorded in a way that truly captured the live, raw, energy of the band.  With a fresh new take on the genre the album ushers Mr. Big into the 21st century with a bang!

TWRY recently caught up with Mr. Big’s Eric Martin to discuss the reunion, the new album, and of course everything leading up to it.

Joey Belladonna Officially Back In Anthrax

May 10, 2010 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

The rumors have been confirmed, Joey Belladonna has officially rejoined Anthrax. Belladonna will make his first appearance with Anthrax this summer when the band joins Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth – The Big Four founding bands of the thrash genre – to co-headline a series of Sonisphere Festivals in ten European cities, as well as playing a handful of Anthrax-headlined shows.

Some feedback from the rest of the band:

“I am super excited about this,” said Scott Ian. “Joey and the rest of the band came to see me play at a club in New York, I hadn’t seen Joey for years, since the end of the reunion tour. Joey taps me on the shoulder, instant big hug, it felt like no time had gone by. The band dynamic is an interesting one – in Anthrax, Joey and I spent so many years of our lives together, we grew up together, we know each other so well, so it was like no time was lost.”

“We’re going to do these summer shows and gel as a band,” explained Charlie Benante, “get comfortable playing with each other again, and the energy from that should go right into making new music.”

Immediately following the final Sonisphere festival in early August, the band will fly back to the U.S. and begin writing and rehearsing for a new album that’s expected to be out in early 2011.  

“We’ve got an unusual luxury of hindsight,” added Ian.  “We finished an album a year ago, we’ve lived with those 12 songs since then, and we can look back on them and see what we really love and what we can make even better, especially with Joey back in the fold.”

Added Benante, “There are five or six songs from a year ago that we don’t want to change, we love them the way they are, other than having Joey making them his own with his vocals.  Then there’s another five or six that we may want to rework, and then there are a bunch of other tunes that are still in the early stages, that we want to finish.

“The band has been on an emotional roller coaster since last summer,” Benante continued, “but I think everything that we’ve had to deal with during that time was pushing us toward this, to Joey being back in Anthrax, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect or appropriate.  To have Joey with us playing these shows with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth is the way it should be – as Anthrax’s vocalist from ’85 to ’92, he was part of ‘The Big Four.'”

“John was a real stand up guy about the situation,” said Ian, about John Bush, Anthrax’s vocalist from ’92 – ’05.  “He knew we wanted to move forward at full speed, that we needed a total commitment to Anthrax, and he knew that wasn’t what he wanted.  We certainly wish John well.  We’ve had so many great times with him, and we appreciate his stepping in last summer at the last minute, and performing with us since then.  He will always be an integral part of the Anthrax family.”
