#77 – Pat Torpey – Mr. Big

Mr. Big - Pat Torpey

Our RETROactive Eighties week kicks off with Mr. Big, who had a worldwide smash with their ballad “To Be With You” in 1992.  After taking some time off, the band is back with a brand new album called What If… that is full of their signature blend of technical prowess and melodic sensibility.  Icon Fetch talked with drummer Pat Torpey about the recording process, the story behind “To Be With You,” and getting to play with Robert Plant and the Knack.
