    No Clash or Elvis Costello or a lot of punk/new wave? No Talking Heads? No Motown or Stax or Muscle Shoals or George Clinton? No Jeff Beck and Springsteen represented by such a B -minus number as ‘Glory Days’? Still, this was a lot of fun and mighty impressive — with somewhat more obscure inclusions like Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and James Gang’s ‘Funk 49.’ I also have to note, with some pleasure, the complete absence of Foreigner and the Eagles. To catch all the cross-echoes and then to get complete changes of pace with things like ‘Sultans of Swing’ or “Smooth” — kept me listening.

    They don’t show his feet which must be punching up the pre-programmed settings so he could jump from a clean solo to a distorted chorus with phaser in the blink of an eye.
