a depressing observation which I've noticed in some Keith interviews is that many of their most older hit songs were written while they were on drugs. I don't know what the long-term effects of drugs are on your brain or if your brain cells regenerate but that may be a factor in their creative ability, particularly with Keith and his ability to develop new riffs, IMHO.
Also, in terms of musical style, in their early years they had a fair number of pop rock songs, of which one of my favorites is the light-hearted (as opposed to blues) Rainbow. They don't do pop rock anymore although it's a style they wrote well.
Regarding animosity on the board, I completely agree, which is why i post less here.
