  • I get a high on that Jackie Brown soundtrack song.
  • No question about it - I had 3rd row center in the Orchaestra Pit to see The Cars live in Memphis, Tn. during the '86 "Door To Door" tour, and I've gotta tell ya, Mr. Easton is nothing less than a marvel of a guitarist - if his solos were not thoroughly verbatim with the original solos as performed on record (they always tended to be VERY close), they were improved upon. I won't soon forget that evening - a truly superior live band. They are sorely missed, and God rest Ben - they left behind a legacy of remarkably intelligent and innovative records that never gathered dust in my record collection; what's more, a wealth of fun memories - Easton rocks hard, bubba....
  • Severely underrated, though much adored by those that know of his talents. :)
