  4. Frank did great work during his time in Oingo Boingo.

    Frank Bello is one of my favorite metal bassists. The guy has some serious chops and a great style.

    Huh, sounds like Frank's having some trouble with some of those licks. Not that I'd be able to do much better, but it's interesting what isolation reveals.

    Cool find! Always had a liking for Frank.

    I noticed that, too. It's quite sloppy at points.
  8. Anthrax isn't really known for precision. They're one of the "punkiest" of the thrash bands IMO, so it fits their style pretty well (on being "sloppy").

    This is fantastic. I love hearing any isolated bass track from a song I like, warts and all.

    I've always dug Anthrax. Frank should probably use a pick, though.

    Don't you know this is actually Geddy Lee who played on this track?....The whole thing sounds so Geddy.

  12. He sure plays hard. This is a really interesting track. I'm a fan of Anthrax but I always like John Bush TONS better than Joey Belladonna; never cared for Joey's voice.

    Yes. It's a fun performance, but the unevenness of his two-fingered plucking sounds strained and annoying to my ear. It's either too fast for him, or he's playing too hard. I can forgive many things in an isolated track, but that kind of rhythmic inaccuracy bugs me, punk or not.

    The isolated track that I would REALLY like to hear would be the shaker in Sympathy For The Devil. Something tells me that it would be even less rhythmically accurate than this Anthrax track.

    OK, I'm gonna find that isolated shaker track. I'll bet it's pretty intense.
