Flares - better in trousers than ceilings

Yep, I did! Furthermore, he was part of the "In Memoriam" section of the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

Ah, "Smoke on the Water"... Great riff --- lame lyrics. Best lyrics I ever heard to this tune were based on my favourite mondegreen "Slow Talkin' Walter, that fire engine guy". Way more interesting than the original, but I think Deep Purple's lawyers must have got wind of it; I haven't seen or heard it since.
