  1. One of my all time favorites! I have it on cassette of all things but nothing to play it on. Glad to hear it again here.

    1. I didn’t like it at first, mostly because I knew the band wasn’t real. I mean, if John Popper had jumped around on the stage like that, he’d have broken through the stage…When I realized that was the whole point, I went ahead and used it. It’s kind of like Christopher Cross, who’s a tremendous singer but doesn’t have the “look.”
