Yeah, that blew me away again. Surely there wasn't a count through all of that maniacal intensity?? If the count started somewhere, can anyone work out what the cue was?.These guys were on another planet.

From what I've read about Buddy's personality, he perfectly expressed his character with that solo - a bit like a Jackson Pollock furiously hurling blobs of red paint onto a giant canvas. Very powerful.
