Mr. Big Frontman Lost The Taste of Hate for Billy Sheehan

(RockAAA) Mr. Big are back in the limelight with their recent album "What If" but vocalist Eric Martin thought it would never come about after the band's bitter split and years of silence between band-mates.

Talking to Rush on Rock, Martin says that his falling-out with bassist Billy Sheehan was at the core of the bands demise and that he couldn't blame guitarist Paul Gilbert for walking out when it got out of hand.

"There was a bittersweet syrup that we all had in our mouths a few years ago. But after five years or more you kind of lost that taste. You lose the taste of hate," he said. "I hadn't seen Billy for seven or eight years and hadn't seen Paul for 12 years. When I saw Billy I looked him in the eye for the first time and said 'it wasn't the other guys'.
