a quiet place to think about music

On one occasion Tommy was putting all of this stuff together on the mono master tape and I said, "What would you do if I did this?" I was kidding around, but by accident my hand actually hit the Record button.

He looked at me and I looked at him and we both jumped to stop the machine, but I had already erased what was on there.

We spent hours piecing four or five little outtakes together. No one ever knew what had happened, but that taught me a lesson to never screw around the recording studio.
