'rock candy' by Montrose. Once you've heard it it'll be with you for ever.

Some of my fave beaty intros:
'Rock and Roll' - Led Zeppelin. Bonzo at his best!
'We Close Tonight' - The Who. A gem on the reissued CD of 'Odds and Sods' - a beautifull Moonie opening!
'My Pal Foot-Foot' - The Shaggs. The extraordinary Helen Wiggin; missing link between Moe Tucker and Sandy West!
'Respectable' - Rolling Stones. Charlie sets up the store, and never lets it lag untill the bitter end. He's the man!
'Five Years' - David Bowie. Don't know who the drummer is, but those mournfull beats communicate so much before the song begins!
'Fifty Ways to leave your lover' - Paul Simon. Agree with this one all the way; it's just brilliant!
'Walk Don't Run' - The Ventures. Oh Yes!!!

Sound and Vision - Bowie

Hello Felicia - if the version you have of Five Years is from the Ziggy Stardust album the drummer was Woody Woodmansey - who played on Bowie's albums from 1970-73.

S.C.H.: Ah thanks for the info there!

Actually I've always thought that Ringo's opening rolling on 'She Love's You' was a good 'un. He had his moments, you know...

I've always liked the drum intro to "Private Life" by The Pretenders - simple but effective

Absolutely no contest on this question, and I'm surprised it took so long for someone to suggest 'Stargazer', featuring the sorely missed Cozy. Good choice SCH and one of the best metal tracks of all time. Definitely Ronnie James Dio's finest 10 minutes too, if not Mr Blackmore's as well.

OH! 'Throttle' Powell! Yes he was great on the old skins. Terrible shame about Cozy; by all accounts he was also a smashing bloke...

As always, writing these before reading yours...

1. You Fool No One (Ian Paice, Deep Purple Mk.3)
2. Lost in Hollywood (Cozy Powell, Rainbow)
3. Keep-a-Knocking (Buffin, Mott the Hoople)

No surprises there! Fireball was another great intro.
