One of the most gifted artists in the art of instrumental rock guitar, Paul Gilbert is not only one of the very fastest on the fretboard, he is also one of the most musical in the genre, with ideas and themes that are never eclipsed by his unearthly speed. Paul's impressive career includes RACER X, MR. BIG, his own solo works, as well as teaching in both the United States and Japan (where Paul enjoys considerable acclaim and popularity). While his 2009 PGM20TH Twentieth Anniversary, Fireman, and PGM401 signature models all celebrate the 20 years since the debut of his signature PGM model, his relationship with Ibanez is actually several years longer, which includes his stellar performance at the Ibanez GuitarMania concert at the 1987 summer NAMM show, considered to be the "rebirth" of Ibanez with its new roster of virtuoso players. In addition, Paul Gilbert is both an in-demand clinician for Ibanez, and arguably the most famous collector of vintage Ibanez guitars in the world.
MR. BIG released a new "best-of" album titled "Next Time Around" on April 29 through WHD Entertaiment. The collection includes songs that were voted on by fans and contains two previously unreleased songs, "Next Time Around" (2009 remastered version) and "Hold Your Head Up" (2009 remastered version). It was made available as a limited deluxe edition with a bonus DVD.
