Very cool story about maybe the best part of Heroes, Robert Fripp’s guitar track.

I just don’t think DM adds anything at all to Heroes.

I love DM so I don’t think they added anything to it, I just think they did it their way, and it sounded amazing. I would have voted for DM over my own submissions.

I had no idea Fripp played guitar on that track. That's a cool story, and the guitar really does make the song.
