“The Yamaha keyboard was one of the first multi-phonic synthesizers that you could play more than one note on and it had this blast patch that you know Tommy used on everything. I really hate that sound. It infested and infused that period for me. I could never understand why such a wonderful musician would love to make that sound on purpose and do it all the time on every song.” – Scott Thunes, 25 January 2012
