The one thing I'm going to differ with the profile, is Paul's ability as a riffer. Although some are more "lines" that riffs, I think he has come up with some great ones, in Mr Big alone: Addicted to that Rush, Green tinted sixties, take cover, Daddy brother lover little boy. Most of them have a very tight rythmic stacatto feel that has always been a PG trademark thing for me.
This is something I think the band Extreme achieved as well. Plus, both bands are latecomers to the hair band party, and are both much known as one hit acoustic wonders, and they are both amazing live. Curious.

It's not really "a big differ."It says: Sure Paul certainly can write a tasty riff — like Everybody Use Your Goddamn Turn Signal, but he’s not really known for being a hooky riff-writing machine ala Iommi, Blackmore, or even Hoffmann and the guys in Maiden and Priest. I don't think you're suggesting he's a "hooky riff-writing machine," are you?
