‘To be with you’ star heads to Indigo!
Eric Martin aka Mr Big is in Bangalore and performing tonight at The Humming Tree. He dropped by Indigo 919 studios along with pal Karl Markus and we got chatting about everything from Mr Big, his solo career to the state of the roads in Dimapur(!!)
Eric’s a hilarious chap, and totally fun to hang out with. We ended up laughing more than talking. With his Bangalore gig around the corner, we asked Eric about what was in store for the audience… here’s what he had to say:
And here’s a throwback to one of their most popular songs, ‘To be with you’. The story behind the song is that when Eric was a sophomore in high school, he was friends with his older sister’s friend (who was a senior). And she would give him rides to school and talk about all the boy problems she had. Martin had a huge crush on her, but didn’t tell her since he knew a senior would never go out with a sophomore.So, Martin wrote this song about her.
