Thanks to Mr. Big hits such as the ballad “To Be With You” and a cover of Cat Stevens’ “Wild World,” there are plenty of people out there who don’t realize just how great a guitarist Paul Gilbert is. In fact, the shredder is regularly included in “top guitarists” lists in various national publications, and is very highly rated by other players. This show at the Whisky is likely to be a career-spanner, though the focus will be on his I Can Destroy solo album, which came out back in May. So expect some jazz-infused blues-rock with huge riffs and harmonious vocals, alongside crowd favorites from the Mr. Big and Racer X (Gilbert’s other former band) catalogs. Less a Vai-esque widdle monster, Gilbert is more about how his skills can aid his songs, and he has plenty of them.
