Has Richie Kotzen replaced John Sykes in the new project also featuring Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan?
Mr Big, well bassist Billy Sheehan and vocalist Eric Martin (guitarist Paul Gilbert and drummer Pat Torpey are absent), dropped into London’s legendray Ronnie Scott’s Club to play an acoustic set earlier this week, to help promote their up and coming new album What if…, the band’s first studio outing since 2001’s Actual Size. Xavier Russell was there to witness it.
In this era, when bands are so careful about choosing their name, it’s interesting to look back at some of the names which have been shared over the years. Some almost inherited their name from a previous band. In other instances, one was forced to change!
