Earlier this year, MR. BIG put on their signature top hats and old shoes for the launch of their last worldwide tour, aptly titled “The BIG Finish.” The first leg kicked off July 20, 2023 in Nagoya, Japan, which took them throughout Southeast Asia where the band performed for hundreds of thousands of loyal fans at 11 sold-out shows. MR. BIG then brought “The BIG Finish” to South America, an initial run of European shows, and two separate east coast/west coast tours of the U.S., with their last-ever stateside concert happening June 6 in Billy Sheehan’s hometown of Buffalo, NY. MR. BIG’s remaining shows will start July 13 in Bulgaria and will roll through August 23 in Romania.

"That is why I am at the level I am now, it is because of Santana, KISS, Rob Thomas, Orianthi, Eric Gales and Kingfish".
Due to the rapidly growing fan base here in the States, Taj and his family made the decision to move and are now living in the America full time. “We were flying back and forth so many times a year it just made sense to live here. Plus, I love it in the USA! I have been here more than half my life off and on so it’s my home away from home.” Balancing a professional career and a teenage life can be tough but off the stage Taj and his family live a very normal life.

Speaking about ‘Breakdown’ YUNGBLUD says, “I wrote this song because it’s been the hardest year for me mentally. I feel myself changing and throughout my life I’ve never felt good enough, it’s been the main thing that on the one hand has driven me forward but on the other, has eaten me up. For as long as I can remember I have felt constantly afraid of how quickly my head can turn dark.

"I discovered KISS in 1989 and it’s the only band I never stopped listening to so I think it’s pretty normal that they influenced my guitar technique." - The Broken Dolls
BY Manuel Bellone
When Nino, Giordy and Ross formed the band in 2007 they head their heads deep into the skateboarding culture, so it was normal that the band took a lot from that. honesty I don’t dislike it but at the same time I don’t find that culture very appealing. I love to wear creepers and watch football on tv! I think the band sound in 2024 is a mixture of punk rock and hard rock. As I like to say “we’re too metal for punks and too punk for Metal heads”

The top is made of Spruce, but the sides and back are made of stunning Brazilian rosewood pattern HPL (high pressure laminate).  They obviously help hold the cost of the instrument down but are also stunning visually.

"An ethos carrying their music to a new generation “I feel like rock is alive and well, it’s just presented kind of differently.” - Frank Berry
BY Jesse Davidson
Berry’s interest in music grew with feverish intensity through her middle and high school years. Her mother, Daniella Clarke, a renowned fashion designer, helped spark her love of style alongside her discovery of David Bowie’s iconic sound and image. “I grew up loving glam rock.” Berry recalled fondly. “The music and fashion are so hand in hand like all of Bowie’s iconic looks. I wanted to look like that.” From the jump, these two worlds naturally coalesced for Berry. When Daniella Clarke traveled to shopping malls to meet potential buyers for her clothes, she would set-up an in-store performances for her daughter’s band to play. “We played in malls, our backyard, our classroom, and then, we got featured in Teen Vogue even though we weren’t teenagers yet (laughs)” said Berry.
