    As usual, somebody tagged this as from SITN but it isn't. I remember sitting on a couch stoned at my friend Danny's house in about 1984. I heard this song on Jim Ladd's radio show and noticed how completely badass it was. I turned to my friend Jay and said, "Who is this?" He goes, "I think it's UFO." Therein began my lifelong obsession with UFO and Schenker. True story.

    @ Arnar -- One of best rock songs OF ALL TIME, but to agree with your point, yes certainly of the 70's

    Schenker just on *fire* on this track, and in this era. Just like Downing or Shermann and Denner, Travers or Steve Hackett; they just had it at one point. Did some good stuff afterwords but just can't quite do it again.

    @ gdcman - agreed that Fastway is no UFO but I do like a couple of their tunes. "We become one" comes to mind.
