 here now comes the rest of the MUSIC-  
 SCENE chapter so play with ya stick!!! 
ok, on with this chapter...             
hhhmmm! the review, first i have to say 
that i was too lame to review the album 
from mr.big myself spo i just copied it 
from the BASS PLAYER number 4, volume 2,
july/august 1991. i hope you don't mind!
the album was already released in the   
beginning of 1991 (feb/may).            
i have to tell you that this magazine is
a magazine for bass players so the      
review will be (most) about mr.big's    
bass player billy sheehan.              
well, let me start...                   
MR.BIG - LEAN INTO IT (atlantic)        
in interviews, billy sheehan always     
points out that first and foremost he's 
a BASS player, not a soloist. his work  
on the latest mr.big disc confirms that;
more than ever, billy's commitment to   
supporting the song comes through.      
LEAN INTO IT is slicker and more        
commercial than the band's debut, 1989's
MR.BIG, but the new album also sports   
cleaner production and a more           
interesting mix of styles. one thing    
that hasn't changed is sheehan's famous 
sound, a rich timbre with a smooth edge 
of distortion - and it commands LEAN    
INTO IT from the first measure. crank up
the opener, "daddy, brother, lover,     
little boy", a rocket ride propelled by 
billy's eighth-note pedaling and furious
fills. the tune features a crazy        
cordless-drill duet - a high light of   
mr.big's recent live shows - performed b
y billy and guitarist paul gilbert.     
in  the  catchy  "green - tinted sixties
mind", sheehan anchors the verses with  
simple but effective chords, then       
switches to a driving single-note line  
for the chorus."just take my heart" is a
radio-ready power ballad opened by      
billy's soulfull, high-register bends;  
he takes brief, low-key leads after the 
choruses, decorating the piece with     
melodic descending apreggios.           
another tune with hit potential is      
"alive and kickin'", in which billy     
pedals the root again, punctuating his  
line with occasional tasty fills.       
sheehan's tone is clearest in the song's
quiet interlude, in which he spins a    
subdued solo, heavy on the chorus and   
full of cross-string leaps, sustained   
notes, and long rests; when the vocals  
return he's pedaling again.             
LEAN INTO IT may be a dissapointment to 
those looking for extended talas-like   
bass solos, but check it out if ou want 
to hear billy sheehan do what he does   
best: PLAY BASS.                        
well, this was the review of mr.big's   
second album/disc. the review was       
originaly meant for bass-players to read
but i gave you this one too. if you     
listen to the album then please check   
this review again and then you          
understand why people like the bass so  
some facts about billy sheehan:         
over the past 20 years billy has shared 
the stage with everything from dog acts 
to david lee roth. he also writes for   
the bass player and to show you that he 
is a funny guy i'll print a letter which
was sent in to him and the answer billy 
gave on it.                             
- i've heard you have a knack for       
  finding the g-spot. whenever i'm      
  playing my bass and a girl walks into 
  the room, i try playing every g-spot  
  on the neck but nothing happens.      
  please help - i'm confused!           
                        m.h. fenton     
                        el cajon, ca    
billy's answer:                         
aha, fenton! i knew you'd track me down 
and try to response on this highly      
sensitive and controversial issue.      
maybe i do have a "knack", but if you   
don't put your bass down for a while,   
you'll never find it.(hint: it's not on 
the neck, nut it's close to the g-string
)keep practising.                       
that was billy's answer...              
i'll give you a hint too, say these four
lines are the strings of a bass-guitar: 
     ----------------- e-string         
     ----------------- a-string         
     ----------------- d-string         
     ----------------- g-string         
as you see the g-string is the lowest.  
this string is closest to your p***s!   
so i guesse you now know what he means  
by the g-spot.                          
okay enough craptalk about billy sheehan
and his band mr.big                     
let me tell you what i'm going to give  
you now.
