I agree with Stephen here.  In oh, about '88, I was working at a Kiss
concert and they did WGFA as either an encore or their last song.
While I truly think I could have played the guitar on it better than
the Kiss guy, it was great to hear it again at concert volume after a
6-year hiatus.

(Then I saw the setlist in their dressing room, later; WGFA was listed
as "Who tune." :-P  I turned my respect meter back down...:-)
