Very inspiring.
Agree with all of that. YouTube just recommended to me this scorching performance of Driven to Tears:

The question is ... does the music still sound great in the sped up parts? I say YES. When a band can rock out that hard and with so much pizazz, I couldn't care less about the details. Maybe he does it on purpose, but without realising it - going for major intensity ... and achieving it.
