Comments:  I would like to dedicate this tab to the one and only, Dr. Metal, Mike
Gonsalves.  He was one of the people who died in the fire at the Great White gig outside
Providence (West Warwick?).  I am not going to be one of those people who pretend
to be somebody's best friend after that person died.  I never knew Doc personally.
I've only spoken to him twice, and both times I was only 15.  However, Doc had one of my
favorite radio shows- The Metal Zone.  Every Saturday Night, at midnight, Doc would
proceed to lay out some of the beefiest tracks known to man, with some lighter metal and
more mainstream metal as well.  That show was his baby, and that show was really the largest
factor in my listening to metal.  I would never have an interest in the underground if it
weren't for Doc. I most definitely would not have tabbed out this song were it not for Doc
and his fantastic show.  Doc was my all time favorite DJ, and even though I haven't listened
to the radio in a few months, and a few months before then, it was not because of Doc.  In
fact, every sporadic time I would listen to the radio in the past year and a half has been
to catch Doc either just DJ'ing or on the Metal Zone.  You know, I'm always bitching about
all the cool people dying.  Well, Doc's death only serves to prove me right and make me
wonder about the future.  I can only imagine how many other little metalheads are running
around now because of Doc's show.  Doc, you ruled.

By the way, if you read the liner notes for the Megadeth album "So Far, So Good... So
What!", one of the people they thank is Dr. Metal.

As for the tab, all the usual, cool song, blah blah blah, if you spot a mistake, e-mail
me.  Later.

Okay...  Everything is getting real hard to figure out right now.  I'm going to figure it
all out, but since this is just too confusing, I'm breaking up the part of this riff
where Frank isn't singing from the rest of the riff.  Now...  Here we go :)
