hmm, well you might be having trouble because its in 7/16 and then moves into more of a 7/8 feel for the solo :). As for the original topic, I'd pickup the back issues to Guitar World April '05 and May '05 where Steve explains a couple pieces of the song (with tab).

nope, not bad hearing :D ... he does say 17/16 but he corrects himself later when he starts playing the riff. oh and just FYI the GW thing was for the original poster 8) hope you can make sense of the tab now.
