Singalong to an oldie

Is this the greatest riff in the history of riffs?

I never did 'get' Deep Purple and I find that riff a bit plodding and obvious. Now, if you want riffs, how about Free? 'I'm A Mover'? How's about that?

It might not be a great riff. But it probably qualifies as the most played riff in music shops since the mid-seventies. If you can only play on one string you can play a version of it.
Music store workers start to look like Jack Nicholson in the "Shining" whenever that riff is played. Just be glad that the only "axes" to hand are Fender Strats......

That's the act of male masturbation portrayed as noise.

As I remember it, anyway.

And me.

Yeah, in fact I'm fed up with all this wanking, doom, death and the country going to the dogs shit.

How about something consummatory - something sensual to hold the womanof your dreams to - you can't have the woman of my dreams - she's mine.

This will do:
