This program presents highlights from the renowned Bass Day Festival. Some of the
world's greatest bass players gather to perform solo, jam, and share
their expertise with bass enthusiasts. The featured artist in this
production is Billy Sheehan. The award-winning musician exhibits his
talent at three performances, and then answers questions on technique
for members of his appreciative audience.
Often called "the Eddie Van Halen of the bass," Billy Sheehan just
happened to catch his big break playing with former Van Halen frontman
David Lee Roth. Although Eddie Van Halen gets the lion's share of credit
for popularizing the two- handed tapping technique on guitar, it's been
rumored that Sheehan began utilizing the same technique around the same
time, albeit on his bass, resulting in a debate during the '80s (among
guitar geeks, at least) as to who was the true originator. Hailing from
the chilly locale of Buffalo, New York, Sheehan spent much of the '70s
and early '80s as the leader of Talas, a bar band that first started by
playing covers before focusing primarily on original material (that
sounded quite similar to Van Halen). The Van Halen connection grew
stronger when the band took Talas out on the road for a smattering of
arena gigs in 1980 (despite the fact that Talas wasn't even on a major
label at the time). According to Sheehan years later, Eddie Van Halen
supposedly made overtures to Sheehan to replace Michael Anthony in Van
Halen, but Sheehan remained in Talas. Several indie releases followed,
1980s Talas: Featuring Billy Sheehan, 1982's Sink Your Teeth into That,
and 1983's Live Speed on Ice, as Sheehan began to be recognized for his
exceptional bass talents in national guitar publications. Just as Talas
was about to sign their much-sought-after major label contract in 1985,
Sheehan received a call from his old pal, David Lee Roth, inquiring if
the bassist would like to join his solo band (Roth had just exited Van
Halen). Sheehan accepted, and along with guitarist Steve Vai and drummer
Gregg Bissonette, David Lee Roth's band was born. Although this lineup
would last for a single album (1986's Eat 'Em and Smile) and tour, the
group managed to do a fantastic job of balancing their instrumental
technical prowess with penning anthemic arena rockers (a Talas-era
Sheehan composition, "Shy Boy," would be included on the album and serve
as a concert opener). Despite the accolades and success the group
received, the union would sadly prove to be short-lived, as Sheehan was
forced by Roth to tone down his playing style on the next release,
1988's Skyscraper resulting in Sheehan's exit from the band prior to the
supporting tour. Sheehan didn't take long to appear again, as he
followed in the Roth band's commercial hard rock sound with a new band
called Mr. Big, comprising ex-Racer X six-string shredder Paul Gilbert,
former solo recording artist Eric Martin on vocals, and drummer Pat
Torpey. The band's debut, Mr. Big, debuted in 1989, but it wasn't until
1991's Lean into It that the group experienced commercial success in the
U.S. (albeit brief), with a pair of hit ballads, "To Be with You" and
"Just Take My Heart." Although Mr. Big would continue issuing albums
throughout the '90s, their U.S. fan base dwindled (they remained an
arena headliner in Japan, however), resulting in the group's demise by
the early 21st century. Sheehan has since kept himself busy with a
variety of other projects, including a power trio named Niacin (along
with keyboardist John Novello and drummer Dennis Chambers), a
collaboration with ex-Frank Zappa drummer Terry Bozzio (Nine Short
Films), as well as backing old pal Vai on several G3 U.S. tours. 2001
finally saw the release of Sheehan's first true solo album, Compression.
Additionally, Sheehan has guested on numerous recordings by other
artists over the years, including those of Glenn Hughes, Glenn Tipton,
Explorer's Club, Tony MacAlpine, and Richie Kotzen, in addition to
various tribute albums.
