    It's very painful. Gives bassists a bad name. Damn hilarious though! I like when he takes a shot (from his stash in his pocket) halfway through. Also good is when he puts his ears up to a wall of bass amps... dude's probably deaf... rofl...

    Yeah, I just realized who it was. Here's one that's even more off the wall.

    There are some pretty amazing parts in there, though. I know I could not play some of that stuff after drinking 2 bottles of jack lol.

    Maybe replacing him with Wolfgang isn't such a bad idea.

    :smug: That's saying something, too. :D
     
  7. Dude... Ouch
     
  8. What kiils me is that the crowd thinks he's the man. IMO there is nothing special about his playing. He does have a good voice though. I wonder if he gets royalities from Jack Daniels.

    That was pretty awful. He is capable much better, for instance, his solo on the "Right here, right now" dvd.

    His solo on "Live Without a Net" was better...not by much though.

    Jimi Anthony?

  15. Same here. Anything with Tony Levin in it is worth at least one viewing IMO.

  17. Reminds me of a similar Gene Simmons "bass solo" that was discussed here a while back. Although Gene had plenty of defenders in that thread:

    But I think Gene actually looks GOOD compared to Michael in this case.

    Eddie is certainly in a bad way, and there's still SOMETHING there...

    Check out Michael Schenker:


    Now THAT is bad...

    I wouldn't have believed anyone could be that bad...
    (his European tour was canceled after one or two shows!).
