So how did it all come to be?

For as long as I've known the concept behind the album I've always wondered, how exactly did such an off-the-wall idea for a concept album bubble up in someone's head. Even more specifically, who's bubbling head was it exactly that came up with the idea?

Well, it's mostly a true story. The 70's were interesting times. Steve expounded upon tales that I told him.

So is it a "mostly" true story about yourself, a friend, or (more specifically) a friend named Tom. Details, I demand details! Oh, and one more question, who is that in the pictures in the booklet? (Those pictures were really the icing on the cake of the originality and hilarity of it all) =)

PS Better stop posting for tonight, before my contacts meld into my eyes, causing a chain reaction that could inevitably result in the destruction of all humanity on Earth...
