But what I will say album-wise when Jon wrote and record pop oriented songs like Born To Follow or the travesty which is Because We Can, Richie's vocals and guitar work kinda made it bearable. If you were to hypothetically remove Richie's vocals and guitar work from Born To Follow you would end up with it sounding like LImitless.
While neither here nor there as a fact, I am convinced Shanks played the lead main riff of Born to Follow. That echo, palm-muted riff that Bobby did live. The tone sounds just like him and Richie hasn't done it a single time live. Just some food for thought that our brain conditions us based on what we think we're hearing.
