Personal Quote:

I am mainly known as the one who verbally counted off 'Sweet Home Alabama,' then played the infamous Stratocaster riff as well as the solos in that tune [...] I am the luckiest guitar player that ever lived. Who could've guessed that song would pay the rent for over 30 years?

Trivia:
