Awesome, great musicians, Michel is my favorite, but together they are a unity,

So that's Palle Danielsson on bass. To get to that level, do you try hard? Work hard? Work very hard? Extremely hard? Or just work your ass off? 27:35 and on until the end of Palle's intro, the skill is almost humorous. Beautiful But Why? really rolls.

I'm a musician and I only come here to remind myself what a piece of shit I am ….and to keep fighting
