  1. The lead-in riff on “Smoke on the Water” is NOT a screw-up!!!! I really don’t see why you’d think that, there’s no flubbed notes, there’s no hesitation. When I first heard this as an 11 yr. old in ’73, I thought, “oh cool, they’re making things a little different live than on the studio version”, which is the mark of musicians who want to PLAY with their music while they’re playing. That’s a huge part of what makes live shows essential.
    Ok, just had to get that off my chest. Carry on.
