"The good thing about Jimmy was that he was very prolific. It was a rare day when he would walk into the rehearsal hall without a new riff to literally teach everybody. You would sit there and be taught that riff. It was good in that I was put in a situation where I had to review my technique on a regular basis. I had to play things which were a little more complex. "
- Tom Hamilton, Aerosmith
