    Cool story about this in the VHE. It seems Dave was going on a little long with the ad-libbing and started to irritate Ted. Dave made it sound like it was planned for Ted to say that with his response-brilliant work!

    That's a great story, but I have to say that I don't believe it to be true. Now maybe it happened like that in a rehearsal, or maybe on an earlier take, and they decided to try it for the actual recording. But I just don't buy that what we hear on that recording was ad-libbed like that.

    I don't know, Glenn-read the entry for Unchained in the VHE. Maybe what I was talking about was from an earlier, alternate take. The VHE entry makes it sound like it was first take, though.

    Yeah, I just re-read it. The VHE does make it sound like what we hear on the album is the first take of that verbal exchange between Dave and Ted. It's funny how the VHE refers to it as a "tongue-lashing"; that might be overstating it just a bit. This seems like one of those legends that built up when Dave told the story to enough interviewers. It's a cool story, but again, I just don't buy it. Not that it really matters, because it doesn't take away from what a cool song it is.

    Yeah, that sounds like a more logical explanation-taken from the "Gospel According To Dave".

    that's definitely the coolest part in all of the vh tunes, the ad-libbing part and then the "come on dave, gimme a break".
    very interesting story, since i don't have the VHE yet
