And while I feel more partial to one of the many great songs in the Air Supply portfolio, I would have a hard time arguing with this choice.

    I picture myself walking down a hallway, through fog, and the people that have been influential in my life start a slow clap. And when that clap ascends into a crescendo, this very song starts what turns out to be the highlight reel of my life.

    When the Broncos win their next Super Bowl, I like to think that this will be the song they'll be playing between the final gun, and the awarding of the Lombardi Trophy. But that's just me. I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me. That's just something that I enjoy.

    Anyway, enough with the poetry. Just turn up the volume, and let the next four minutes and fifty-six seconds transport you to another place.

    This is by far my favorite slide guitar song of all time. Maybe not the greatest solo ever but a great example of why they call him slowhand.

    He's dynamic on a level beyond anyone else I've ever heard on slide. Not really a fan of the guitar hero stuff, but that guy is truly incredible.

    I know Gilmour uses a lap steel for that spacey sound on a lot of songs.

    I'm not 100% sure if this is true or not, but I believe that between 1970 and 1971 all these fantastic talents died at the age of 27: Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Duane Allman:

    I remember the day he died... the radio was reporting "Duane Allman" and all the girls heard "Wayne Osmond" and started flipping out. It kind of shocked me that these 10 and 11 year old girls knew who Duane Allman was until I found out why they were crying... stupid girls!!!

    Dickey Betts is perhaps, the greatest Souther Rock guitar player ever, and I absolutley love his sound. I got to see The Allman Brothers Band live back in the early 1990's at Red Rocks, with the ever loving Dickey Betts!!

    I'd like to see a comeback from Southern rock, soul, blues, rockabilly, hybrids, Texas soul, whatever. Anything but this wasteland of music since about 2000.
