I'm interested in Tony's ergonomics. Look at the Buddy set-up used as a model
for Grubber and his influence on Dave and Steve...even Neil, then Tony with those
erect toms. Thoughts? That bombastic yellow kit with the rock sound was just
Tony being Tony...and I love it! Dude played with rebellion.

Man...early coke feel on this groove! Montrose brings a rocky edge to his guitar
which I dig. TW would have made a hellava rock drummer! One word: POWER
just ooozes from this dude. That drum sound is so pure...no BS...in your face
attack. Toms so distinct...

I didn't want to say it, but those tempos were pretty aggro!
