These are the words of drummer Brian Downey re: Visconti's allegations of overdubbing.
"I have not seen Tony since he started with that nonsense talk.
I do not know why he says such things. Has he become senile? How can he say that Live and Dangerous consists of 75 percent overdubs! It is just not true! Is he trying to take all the credit or what"?
"I know what you hear on the album! Listen, here is some common sense when it comes to live recordings.
How many microphones do you have around a drum kit?
At least fifteen microphones. Understand the leakage into them when you have Phil's bass stack next to them, and me on the other side.
You know how loud I play! Then you have Scott's equipment on top of that. How will you be able to overdub all that? You cannot separate it out of the drum channels!
You can do that now, with computers, but then, in 1978, not a chance"!
The best LIVE rock album ever. End of!
