At least, that's certainly what I thought. They may have had the hair, but by god I was glad when they came along and blew that other stuff away.
I know I never heard anyone try to tell me what a great song Cherry Pie was after that. Thank christ for it too!!
There's no doubt there was small elements of it I was down with....enjoyed some of the playing too. But as a whole, I could take it or leave it......and ususally preferred to leave it.
