    I saw Steve Vai and Billy Sheehan live in Dublin last night, and they kicked ass!!
    they started of with Shy Boy, and it made me think how cool it would be to see Dave play with this band again!!!
    Also in his band was Tony MacAlpine, who I really liked in the '80's (does anybody remember M.A.R.S./Driver project?)
    Anyway, until VH reunites, this is definitively
    the best rockband to see live!! [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img]

    Hey, btw, WTF happened in MR. Big? Sheehan said something about being kicked out? I'll bet that with all that talent he's more than difficult to get along with. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    I saw Vai and Sheehan a few months ago on the G3 tour as well, they were AWESOME!!!! I loved seeing Shyboy live, Billy did a good job singing that song didn't he? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    As for Billy Sheehan and Mr. Big, I believe that Mr. Big is going to do a final tour with Billy and then call it quits.

    I'd actually like to see Vai and Sheehan hook up with Dave again if the VH reunion doesn't work out...

    but I don't think that's gonna happen either.

    So did Billy handle the vocals at this show? I wasn't too impressed with hearing him sing "Unchained" on a DLR boot I have from the 86 tour in Fresno. It was almost painful!!

    However, singing aside, I'd love to see this union!! I missed my chance to see these guys on the EEAS tour, but I DID see Vai early on the Skyscraper tour.

    I've never seen anyone hump a guitar and make it sound like the guitar was the one enjoying it!! [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Regardless, I'd love to see this show. Anyone know how long they're going to be out on the road together?

    Cabo, on the G3 show that I saw, Billy sang Shyboy, and on the encore he sang La Grange by ZZ TOP! He did a great job on both of them. Steve Vai sang Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing on the encore as well.

    It looks like Sheehan isn't even going to be involved with the final Mr Big tour. I just read that this morning - hardradio.com news I think. They asked Paul Gilbert to play bass(?) and he declined also.
