Man. Not news to wake up to, learning that one of the most amazing guitarists ever, ripped off by god knows how many people worldwide and celebrated just as much, is no more.
I’m out the door for work here and it’s going to be a busy day, so a longer appreciation will have to wait for later, and my guess is some much better ones will have been written and posted by the time I get around to mine. But for now:
The combination of roaring voice followed by roaring guitar that starts this song can’t be described other than in terms of shock, release and perfection. Arguably people have just been refining it since because damn, who needs more?
