I actually think this particular bass solo is pretty darn cool. Just my opinion. Michael Anthony Bass Solo - YouTube But here are a sampling of some of the comments (and these are the type comments you will find on ALL of Mike's bass solo videos). -Jesus, this is some weak-#ss s#it. Eddie must have been climb ing the walls backstage waiting﻿ for this amateurish noodling to end. -Oh god,i just remembered﻿ how terrible he was. -This﻿ was the part of the show where you ran to the john...loved Mikey, but his bass solo was just painful to watch and hear.
