    Song is much more reminiscent of Kool and the Gang's "Celebration," especially the quieter parts.

    They do have the same chords in common. I think.............
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Brett - never thought about it, but i totally see what you're saying. i was listening to highway to hell, and noticed it, but i definitely see similarities with celebration.

    Speaking of things that sound similar, the high-pitched guitar sound at the end of the solo in Summer Nights sounds a lot like the one at the end of the solo in Fire In The Hole. [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Anyone else notice this?
