They have one of the best engineered sounds of all the hard rock/metal bands that I know. I especially love the heavy bass.
Their debut album came out the year I was born.
Not really considered a rock artist by most main stream Rock fans but to me the man is a musical genius who definitely knows how to rock and plays a guitar like no one else can.
Great vocals, awesome melodies and arrangements, simply put: the best rock group ever.
Again, great vocals, great melodies, one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
