Excellent!!! Triple guitar action at it's best.

When Ronnie died the band died. He's an American gem.

Don't listen to anyone who sez to play the album and get the same effect.

When you start watching them in England opening for the Rolling Stones you can tell that the crowd is only mildly interested. By the end they are rocking and then you hear that they booed the Stones when they came on because the crowd wanted more LS.


These guys are the greatest live band of all time.

Ronnie Rocks!
