I saw this post of Pat Torpey in the blog portion of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. I was move by his post and it is amazing knowing that he’s handling it at his best. Pat is truly an inspiration to everyone.
Here’s the link to his story written just recently.
Mr. Big’s secret weapon, Pat Torpey is hailed number two for Drum Hero of the Year 2014 by Musicradar.
After announcing that Pat has been battling Parkinson’s Disease, he still managed to join his band on stage for their world tour last 2014 in support of their new album …The Stories We Could Tell. Truly a hero and an inspiration to many. He may not be able to perform normally his ultimate drum skills, Pat assumes he will never leave his band hanging. And with that he has been given credit, and I pretty sure a lot of his supporters agree with me. When he announced to his group about his disease, it was pretty rough for them but his BIG brothers supported him 100 percent without a doubt.
I hope Pat will recover with his illness and keep the fire burning with Mr. Big.
Here’s the link for the full list of the Drum Hero of the Year 2014.
This is a blog about my BIG love for the band Mr. Big. Since Eric Martin is my favorite frontman and that I am huge fan of his amazing voice, I wanted to write about his version of The Bangles’ Eternal Flame. Yes, Eric had his own version of this song. And I found a music video made by a fan in Youtube and thought of sharing it here.
I think Eric made a great version. Besides, he’s a soulful singer. What do you think about this version of the famous Eternal Flame?
