Is There a Fix?

I'm not so sure about that, but it's certainly possible. I know for sure 
that he said - during his rehab from the accident - that he couldn't make 
Pinball Wizard sound right. He said no one could get the rhythm right except 
him, and now even he couldn't. That was in '93 or'94. He seems to have 
overcome that, thank God, but it does sometimes seem like he becomes 
fatigued during PW in a way he didn't before the bike accident.

In the next few days, I'm going to have to see if I can come up with some 
sound-bite examples of songs performed live before noodling and after the 
advent of noodling, because - from some of the other posts I've been 
seeing - I'm not sure that everyone understands what I'm talking about. Stay
