Vision Thing Riff

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Probably been asked before but I got sent a Q t'other day and I said I'd ask here. I quote;

Vision Thing guitar riff was a rip off?...

I'll pass on all comments...

it does sound like Eldritch borrowed some inspiration? but he made an entirely different song from the part so it seems fair.

Rip off? Not really. Inspiration, surely!

Vision thing: 1-1-1-1-1-1-3-4
Dominion: 1-3-4-4
Lucretia: 1-1-1-1-3-3-4-4

Is this a discussion about 1-3-4?
Should we have one about 1-4-5 also?
So about rockn roll?
love is just a shot away
