It's funny -- we go to a fabric or furniture store -- they go to my wife and ignore me.

No, thank goodness.

But she did have an awful lot of crap on the wall, there were knickknacks all over the place and a bazillion candles in the bathroom. All that was a real cause for concern, but...

Went to a party the other night and had this up on my phone for reference. I had to keep glancing at it, so it didn't work all that well. Pretty sound advice otherwise.

That's good, but a bit overdone for me. Martin Barre's lead solo on the studio version is one of the best ever; here it sounds like he's trying to "update" it.

Trust had to be rebuilt, which...
