Or that Tommy is clearly playing something not a vintage tele and his tone is great. Or that its been a long time since I've seen Tommy play an electric? Or that is one fucking sweaty suit Joe is wearing.
But the main reason is the bass player. We see him at the end and he is the spitting image of Richard O'Brien, and look at the length of his fingers!
That was great. No complaints, but what a backing band. You can't do that stuff without a good one.
El Mocambo has got to be up there with some of his best gigs, definitely his pre-rehab ones anyway. This was probably the concert that turned me onto his tone, I remember it confusing the hell out of me as I couldn't work out whether his lead tone was clean or dirty... or just fat with tons of volume
Magic Johnson wasted the greatest porn name ever on a basketball career.

I'd thought about this but though the overdrive tones are good I'm not sure the Strymon does a particularly nice Fender clean. Crossed my mind to sell teh RK50 and replicate this exact set up with my, oh fuck it, can't recall the name of my attenuator/amp thing.
