Boston without "that Boston sound" !?!?

Boston without "that Boston sound" !?!?
Yesterday I've heard something on the radio that really upset me. Someone made a reggae style remix of "More than a Feeling". The heavy guitars were filtered out and in their place they put... a skanking organ! It really stinked.

Hmmm....I wonder if that organ just needed a  
good set of Teslas?  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

    Hmmm, I always thought that it was Tesla who just needed a good set of organs...

P.S. In case that reference draws a total blank, Tesla was a loud electric band that put out an acoustic album and then disappeared from the scene... They covered that corny song from the 70's that was originally done by the 5 Man Electrical Band (?) but I can't think of the name right now.

I can't imagine it stinking more than the real thing
