Re: Was this a false start by Bonzo?
TBH, I think it was a brainfart on Bonhams part. It happens. Didn't wreck anything, and it's live R&R.
The tune out On The Tiles (among others) has a few miss cues (music & vocals), but they left them.
I asked Jason Bonham about that song, and that's what he said. Apparently, questions about that song comes up quite a bit. Recordings were done a LOT faster back then, and if something had a cool vibe, or it wasn't a disaster, it's "sounds good, on to the next".
Personally, I'd rather have that, than a band or artist taking 4 years to make a record, running it through pro-tools taking out all the character and personality.
