    Which do you guys prefer in concert, Mike's bass solo or him singing lead on a song i.e. SGMAD on the 3 tour. Personaly, I've never been that crazy about bass solos. They just don't do anything for me. Give me Mikey crankin' out a lead vocal or two any day! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'd rather hear him sing with the band. Bass solos are kind of boring. [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    I've maintained for quite a while VH should just "give" Mikey SGMAD as "his" song to do each show! The times I've heard him sing that one live are jsut absolutely amazing!!!

    Even if DLR comes back, let Mikey handle the lead vox on that one...what a great song! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Cool hearing Ed & co singing "somebody get Mike a doctor!"

    Sadly, after the car show incident, that may have been the literal case after Ed got done chewin' that ass! [img]redface.gif[/img]

    um, well, since here's hoping that DLR would be back, i'm cool with him doing his bass solo. although if someone else joins, then he should get a song to so, that would be cool. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    If it's the reunion tour, I don't want Mike going back and singing SOMEBODY GET ME A DOCTOR or another Dave-era classic. What's the point? You've got the actual singer right there!! I didn't like him doing that on the 3 Tour. It made me feel more and more like I was seeing a cover band, and it reminded me even more that Dave wasn't there because they turned this ferocious classic into a good-time hand-clapper with Mike almost declaring with his vocals performance, "Who needs Dave?"

    When he screeched, it actually hurt the ears...badly.

    Hmm ... first time I've heard a take on Mikey's SGMAD like this before.

    Other than seeing the VH bros. perform live, the only thing that made the Cherone tour worth seeing was hearing Mike and the boys play SGMAD.

    I would rather hear Mike play bass and DLR sing that song. I could do without a Mike Anthony bass solo, and trade it for a couple of more classic VH tunes with Roth.
