    I just watched the US Festival video and noticed that half way through his solo, he throws his bass onto the ground and walks to the side of the stage and motions for his bass tech, and when the guy walks out with mike's other bass, Mike walks up to him to get his bass and the guy shoves him out of the way and throws that bass down onto the ground too. He seemed pissed. Anyone know what the deal was on this?

    By the way, if anyone has the Largo 82' or Argentina 83' videos and would sell a copy to me, please let me know.

    From what I`ve read that little scene was planned for the show but It`s pretty convincing if you didn`t know . [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    I remember seeing that on a video for the '84
    concert as well as the '82. So, if he was pissed, he's been pissed more than once.

    By the way, I love those solo's

    Yes, it was planned. Though Mike's wife, Sue, who was also standing on the side of the stage, actually though Mike was pissed and did actually fire his bass tech, Kevin Dugan, right then and there.

    They all got a good laugh out of it after it was over.

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    I do know what part you are talking about, and I always thought it was "staged" by Mikey.

    I remember reading the story about Dugan getting fired etc... funny stuff !!

    Bring back the fun

    looked VERY staged to me, they had a smart ass look on their faces, like they were going for the laugh...not trying to fool anyone.
