was it really a ballsy move to fuzz out a piano? or just a screw up by some burnout who connected the cables incorrectly? John Lennon gets credited for creating the 'backwards' guitar solo, he credits weed for being so wasted he put the tape in wrong prior to playback.
That's basically what I wrote ..
