Have you ever been listening to music and for some reason a certain song just grabs you a different way than it ever did before for whatever reason? We were all partying in the garage a week or so ago and 'My Sharona' came on. I always liked the song because its fun to play on the drums and I love Bruce Gary's playing, but I never gave it too much thought. Holy cow, the guitar solo blew me away (you have to listen to the longer version and not the single). Berton Averre is relentless. My wife and buddy were floored and kept shouting 'He wont stop'. It even seems like Gary tries to end it a few times with no success and only does so when he comes in with a slower off beat type fill. Brutal solo and a song that will now be always different for me. Sometimes being under the influence makes you look at things in certain ways too.
