“I like the record a lot. Starting with Draw The Line, drugs had really driven the band apart. It was too much, the band was too young, and they were too naïve. Joe had a lot that he wanted to express, and so he left the band.
“He had a lot of strong material, but he made it very clear to everybody that this was his show. He had ‘lead singer disease,’ and he told Ralph [Morman], the singer, ‘Here’s the line. I’m out in front, and you don’t go past this line.' So he had both ‘lead singer disease’ and ‘lead guitarist disease.’
“It’s a terrific album, though. Joe had all of this pent-up music, and the playing was just ferocious. It blew out of the speakers.”
