Alvin Lee's "I'm Going Home" solo bit - saw Ten years After at the Music Hall in Boston in 1972. Virtually identical to the Woodstock performance. Lee truly was a speed king on guitar without the wankery of today's fast players.

Ok, really quick story.

We went to see Trent Resnor's old band SLAM BAM BOO or BOOM? in Ohio and it was an open mic night..

We missed them. BUT, they had this awesome band that was like HIllbilly Jim and his band. So they played a little and we were getting bored.

All of a sudden, Frampton comes in from outside and he wants to sit in with Hillbilly jim or wtfever his name was.

HBJ was like, ok..

So they played a little and HBJ was playing HARD. He covered a couple of hendrix tunes and Frampton got mad and they start to have this guitar war like something out of the movie CROSSROADS.

Long story short, HBJ blew him the f**k out. Frampton was sooo pissed he threw his guitar into it's case and left in a huff.

I have to look, I still have a recording of that.

Frampton having a bad night = cool
The look on Framptons' face when he left in a huff = priceless.

Pictures, or it didn't happen.

always loved the motorcycle revving sounds on bad motor scooter intro..LOL :D

When the song was conceived before this guitar sound, the band and Ted Templeman were not impressed because they thought it was missing a "hook", to make it stand out. Ronnie Montrose stumbled upon it while messing with a slide and fuzz box one day in the studio. Playing his guitar in Open D tuning, Montrose improvised what became the motorcycle sound — although Templeman and engineer Donn Landee kept him going when they failed to get the tape rolling.

When performed live by the original Montrose line up, Sammy Hagar would play the "motorcycle" introduction on a lap steel slide guitar. Hagar provided the same intro when Chickenfoot, the supergroup composed of Hagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith, performed a version during their live performances. Joe Satriani did the "motorcycle" introduction at the Montrose tribute concert using the whammy bar on his guitar instead of the slide guitar.

The song has also been included on the Sammy Hagar compilation The Essential Red Collection. Hagar still plays this song quite frequently in his live act.
