    Default Michael Anthony - the solos





    This is the reason I miss Mike on this tour. It would give me a chance to get a beer and take a piss without missing anything.

    Come on, that's not necessary. Mike deserves better than that from the fans. All he ever did was devote himself to VH, give 100% for the fans every night, and did it all with class.

    It's possible to accept that Ed and Al no longer wished to play with Mike and to support the new version of VH without pissing all over Mike in the process.

    No matter how goos the new shows have been, they would have been better with Mike anyways.

    I agree. We all know Mike isn't the greatest Bassist or musician in the world, but he damn sure was an important part of Van Halen. An ingredient missed in the current line-up (no disrespect to Wolf as he seems quite talented and will only get better).

    Even though I don't agree with the implied tone of the OP, if there is one good thing that has come out of Mike not being there is the removal of the bass solo from their live show. Only bass solo I have ever enjoyed was Billy Sheehan's on the EEAS tour, as he and Vai kind of did a boack and forth that was pretty cool, otherwise, play two more songs instead of listening to a bunch of thump thumps.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Not a big bass solo fan. Ultrabass was too long on the RHRN album. I think that a lot of it has to do with the nature of the instrument. I was not a huge drum solo fan, either. I do like the AVH solo that he has been doing since '93.

    I was very happy when they let MA doin SGMD in '98 and 2004.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    Obviously the thread was only started in order to stir the pot and there's really no point to it, but......

    even the biggest Mikey honk has to agree his solo's were shit....a complete waste of valuabel concert time. A bathroom run for sure.


    But in fairness, I'd say the same thing about Ed's solo on this tour. A huge disappointment and just plain bad. If you still have a show to see on this tour then take my advice and hit the head when Ed's solo spot comes up. You'll thank me.

    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
