(Someone like) Mike Szuter is gonna replace Billy Sheehan - on BASS?! What the hell are you smoking, Carlos?! Mike is definitely a very talented player but he'd never be able to step into the shoes of one if not THE greatest rock bass player on the planet. Can you name 5 bass players in MHR that have even half of Billy's chops, not to mention the kind of unique personality Billy projects through his music? I can't. Marcel Jacob from Talisman is probably closest in terms of style out of all of them. Do you seriously think this is a situation like Journey where you can line up 73 Steve Perry clones and pick the best one? Not a chance... Mr. Big is as much Mr. Big without Billy as Van Halen would be VH without Eddie or Iron Maiden would be Maiden without Steve Harris. There are a few musical personalities on this earth that simply can't be replaced and unfortunately for Mr. Big - Billy Sheehan is one of them. They'll probably tell you that themselves in the very near future...
