This brings back memories of the good old days am happy to have been young and had fun during that time period, now days I refuse to cower in fear of the recent tragic events.

I think they just out-Zeppelined Led Zeppelin. that solo at the end is reminiscent of Jimmy Page’s solo on Heartbreaker. Shame they never played this with Neil.
