  1. I look at Donna Summer similarly to Led Zeppelin…ok it’s a stretch but what I mean is…both of them were great but they spawned some really bad clones out there.
    Hot Stuff is fantastic. That riff works as a rock song also on guitar.

    It’s probably just me…but I have to look up Supertramp song titles…I end up knowing and liking the songs but I don’t know many of them by the titles.
