Thanks Helmut and Jim, whatever level you feel you're at musician-wise, be sure you are way above me. It strikes me as marvellous that a person can play something on a guitar and sing something different over it without getting muddled up. That's the level I'm at.
So hearing your views have at least helped me understand how a musically experienced person listens to songs, until I get hold of Jeff himself that's the info I'll keep.
See what you mean about the VH song too, Jim, never heard it before but the similarity jumps out. Strawbs have a song which is very reminiscent of Alice Cooper too, which is on an album they were recording in the same studios as him, when I first heard it I was convinced he'd pinched the idea from them, not the song itself but the kind of mood, tinkly yet threatening. Just found it on Youtube and spookily it has a pic of the cover of Burning for You with it. It's mainly in the intro and outro to the first part (Tears) the second part is just a jolly twinkly tune.
Yeah definitely reflects the feel of some AC songs, I can see where maybe he did get some influence from it.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
