    This is an excellent example of how sound effects and the amplifier has such an influence to the sonic candy.
    Timing is everything in business and fashion.
    20 year later, same technique made Eddie Van Halen millions.

    Eddie, if you ever reads this, chime in and please share your story. Did this guy have any influence on your style?
