A cool song off of "The Elder". I personally like alot of the playing on this album, most fans
either LOVE it or HATE it. I personally love it, It's a big stretch for KISS, but it works. This
songs is one of the best. The solo is simple and rememberable, a trademark KISS staple. It has a
riff that is similar to "Keep Me Comin" which is on the follow-up to "The Elder, "Creatures Of
The Night".
