    Anyone here know what the equipment Prakish John used on Lou Reed's "Rock N Roll Animal" ?
    The sound is awesome to my ears. The sound is muted sounding, almost "burby". Not really like an upright sound, but I would describe it as " muted synthy with dead like decay". I know that sounds funny, but how did he get that sound?

    I saw him with Alice Cooper(Welcome To MY Nightmare tour)...IIRC, it was a Rick & Sunn cabs.
    This should be in the same time frame as the Lou Reed album you mentioned.
