    Yeah, I know this song is from VH III and most of you guys think that this song stinks, but IŽll tell you, this song is one of my favorites. I mean, Gary has such a great voice!! Although I think that this song didnŽt need to be so long...Eddie put so much on it, that at the end, his solo and guitar riff sounded to firmly "obligated"...I hope you understand what I mean...
    Also, one time, I put some salt on a freshly open wound just to see what happened...boy did that hurt!!!!! It hurts me just to think about it!! (yeah, yeah, I know IŽm a jackass )

    I agree, this is easily one of the best on III, and one of their most underrated songs. Most guys would have strummed chords, Eddie played a fairly complex melody. Most guys would have done a typical solo, Eddie started way low and meloncholy, before moving down to the higher pitched strings. Gary's lyrics are full of metephores, that aren't cliches. I love the line, "Still as the air as a white-washed tomb." This is a great song, even at its length.

    Gary DOES have a great voice and this is one of the better tracks from III. However, the marriage of Gary and the band was not a good one. It just never felt right from day one. At least with Sammy, you felt that he could handle the task. I don't think most people felt that way about Gary from the beginning.

    The song did and still kicks ass - it has a great Zeppelin feel to it! I though it was even better live!

    It's ok to like some VH III!

    I like the Ed's amazing guitar work and how the song builds up. Gary sounds much better on it than most of the other songs on III.

    This song has some of Eddie's best guitar work. This is one of only a couple of songs off of III that I really liked.

    Awesome freaking Song. Seeing them do it live was a chore, but this is easily one of there best songs, no matter what album it was on.
