I've always considered that to be one of their worst songs. It's certainly not a bad vocal performance, though.

Yes...Chick Corea is awesome...agreed.

Drums - Peart/Bruford
Guitar - Howe/Hackett
Keyboard - Wakeman/Felix Hanneman
Bass - Squire/Geddy Lee
Vocals - Ozzy Osbourne (you can laugh...but nobody in rock has the million dollar voice that the OZ man has. Everything he touches turns to gold) He has the most recognizeable voice in rock history (read that somewhere on the net). AND...He and Wakeman have played together so
that makes OZZY apart of the Prog Rock Ring I believe....nice!!!
