We played at a club called, the Elbow Room. Don Carlos, the nightclub owner, was very hip and a very important person who made a big impact on my life.
Traffic was very, very free. It was great.
For me, naming bands was the forerunner to really writing lyrics, because I work off titles.
But then you have to write a song, so at that point, I picked up the reins and started to write lyrics.
Guys would hang out in groups just to be with the music.
I think you do better when you are really up for it, cause passion goes up.
I turned everybody on so, psychologically, I guess I was pushing the boundaries creativity.
Mr. Fantasy was the only song that was scribbling on a piece of paper.
We all had a desire and appreciation for such a wide range of music.
You know, I had the ability like a catalyst to really get everybody hyped up.
You try to be moody when you're young and it had a good ring to it.
After that, I specifically started writing lyrics. I would like sweat and think and get it all together.
Because I would just tell everyone it was going to be great and just put that belief in them.
Far From Home was also my idea from a magazine I'd seen.
So the name of a group has to say something. The name has to be strong.
