The drum solo "Batalla de los tambores", played by Sully and Shannon, which the band regularly plays live, started by having two drum sets on rehearsals during the tours. It begins with a drum riff from the song "Get Up, Get Out!", from their first album; and gradually becomes a medley of drum parts of songs: "YYZ" by Rush, "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith, and "Moby Dick" by Led Zeppelin. The solo is never rehearsed, it's just played.
