I aspired to that fat, distorted sound he used to get back in the 70s. The coda on King Crimson's "Starless" is jaw-dropping. And his playing on that Roxy video is just brutal. Wish he could've been around for Roxy's RnRHoF induction.

I saw him play a little solo set opening for the reunited Yardbirds about 15 years ago - apparently he was on vacation and the promoter called him at the last minute to play. He did Rendevous 602, Heat of the Moment, The Smile Had Left Your Eyes, Battle Lines and Easy Money acoustic in a tiny club.
