David Rees feels about The Minutemen pretty much the same way I do. Watching them in April of 1985 at The Living Room in Providence, eight months before D. died, I got an idea of what you might be able to do as a musician (as in, how wide your blast radius would be if you placed "x" amount of C4 into "y" bottle), and what it would be like to exceed the expectations of even those who expect you to be great. It was a "hang it up or turn it up" moment, and we turned it up. To no particular end, but I've always hoped D. would approve. (Link courtesy of the mighty Jonathan Shainin.)
