Hey, do bass solos exist?

Hey, besides MetallicA with their Cliff Burton times, does any band ever have bass solos?

Yes they do exist outside of metallica, they exist more in jazz/funk music, where the bass is seen as more of a melodic instrument, check the bass video's thread at the top of the bass forum (its stickied so you cant really miss it!) for a few very nice bass solo's from a few of the bass 'pros'.

A certain Bill Banwell does some of the better bass solos I've heard.

Here ya go. Not all of these have bass solos as like a clear solo, but all of them have amazing solo-like lines throughout the song.

in the song Black Fire by Sabbat from Japan, theres a bass solo similar to a guitar solo in the beginning somewhere, if only it were more audible. and on Suffocation by Morbid Angel, hitting around 2:07, theres a small bass solo/interlude.

Yea, there might be more solos by him, I haven't heard any though (but I still have to listen to all Sadus except Elements of Anger).

Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) is pretty impressive too, but i don't know if he has any real solos or just tons of fills and complicated basslines. And it's not really metal either.

Black Sabbath - Bassically/Nib starts out with a very nice bass solo by Geezer Butler.

they don't exist. cliff burton is a computer program created by the government...specifically, he's a composite of several bass players melded together as one superb bassist.

Billy Sheehan used to solo like a maniac in his Talas days...don't know if anyone under 35 remembers that band though They had a live album - "Live Speed On Ice" or something like that with a full-tilt Sheehan solo on it if I recall correctly - it's been ages since I heard that!

Apparently, he still does

And I think he did a cd called "The Talas Years" or something, more recently than Talas itself...
