PAUL GILBERT (Mr. Big): ‘I Can Destroy’ solo album


unnamedGuitar maestro PAUL GILBERT is set to release  his 17th solo album, I CAN DESTROY, which is set for release May 27 via The Orchard. As an added bonus, fans who pre-order the album will receive an automatic download of the title track, “I Can Destroy.”

It’s no accident that I CAN DESTROY cuts a wide swath of styles and textures, from the full-frontal assault of  “Everybody Use Your Goddamn Turn Signal” to the jazz-blues lament of “One Woman Too Many” (which also features GILBERT’s patented four-pick Makita drill-bit riffery) to the radio-friendly balladeering of “Love We Had” to the smoking-hot gut/heart punch of “I Am Not the One (Who Wants To Be With You),” the latter track’s title a playful reference to the ubiquitous #1 hit GILBERT enjoyed as part of his gig as lead guitarist for the still-going-strong Mr. Big.

“My guitar playing was born from playing in my teenage heavy rock bands,” GILBERT explains. “After playing for 40 years, I’ve been able to evolve the way that I see the fretboard, and how I hear the guitar in my head. This opens up my soloing, and also my writing. I couldn’t have written this music when I was a kid. I couldn’t have written these lyrics either. I needed time to live…to experience joy, and anger, and love, and frustration at people who don’t use their turn signals.”
