~ The chutzpah of these guys ~
Imagine stealing a song from one of rock’s greatest pioneers. Now imagine stealing it, and putting your own guitar-histrionics spin on it. And just for good measure, now imagine that note-perfect but oh-so-deliciously-revved-up version becomes so definitive that people completely forget about the original.
Oh, and do it on your debut album, before anyone has a clue that you’re going to become one of the signature American rock bands of all time.
