Mr_Big_-_Living_RoomWelcome to the URHQ living room, excuse the mess, but we've just had a US supergroup in here playing an intimate set just for us and we've not had a chance to clean up yet. Okay, we may have been playing the latest CD from Mr Big, but it certainly feels like they were here as it contains 10 classics in a completely new and fresh dress and Rob Watkins wants to tell you all about it.
