...and what would your answer to that question be, Rick?
A killer sax!
Oh no! I still cringe when I hear Thorogood's newer stuff with the sax (well, it's 'newer' to me). Much preferred his pre-sax stuff. Don't get me wrong, I love good sax with music that's meant for it, but I don't feel it with BCC. Just like the horns didn't belong on The Door's 'Soft Parade' or The Stone's 'Sticky Fingers.' Uffda....
I can however listen to Gene Ammons for hours at a time, and I've worn out a couple Grover Washington Jr albums on vinyl.
