Pete didn't write "Fire."  You have to admire Roger's technique, regardless 
of whether you like the song.  Nobody can add tension to something any 
better than he can.

They didn't quite replace guitars, but some techno groups have managed to do 
without.  PT did predict a new musical genre.

I don't think RD will go for it.  He's said his voice is to heavy for 
"unplugged."  Basically, his style of singing is based on the volume--it's 
always been easier for him than trying to sing softly.  Now, of course, 
damage to his voice is more likely to show up there too.

How do you suppose JAE would sound unplugged?  Think he would play an 
acoustic bass?
