    Main riff sounds like Satisfaction from the Rolling Stones

    I love this. It's wearing a very 60s pop rock mask, but right underneath is this core of songwriting substance that is fully timeless. This could be done successfully in about 30 different styles. =)

    This song is 'classic' in all it's incarnations. My personal favourite is on Neil's 'Unplugged' album but it doesn't have that wonderful acid guitar sound.
