Born : March 19, 1953 in Buffalo, NY, United States.
Billy Sheehan’s penchant for innovation has revolutionized the way the bass guitar is played. Rising to cult status in the 80's with his Buffalo, NY-based band Talas, Billy was recruited by David Lee Roth when Roth left Van Halen in '85. He recorded two platinum-selling albums with the former Van Halen front man before setting out on his own. He formed Mr. Big in 1989, achieving a Billboard #1 single in the USA and 14 other countries with "To Be With You" from their 2nd Atlantic Records album release "Lean Into It." While developing his trademark style of playing, he performed over 4,000 live gigs on every continent except Africa and Antarctica.
