I didn't think he would do it. We had been in worse situations before, and Jake had always kept his emotions under control. Now here we were, already being watched, and he had to go berserk. It wasn't a matter of 'What was he thinking?' as much as 'That man needs some medication; didn't he even think about what he was doing?' It was like being trapped on a train wreck upside down with a rabid creature coming toward me. Yes, I was scared. I never imagined it would end up like this when we started planning three years ago. The original idea was reasonable, we would just Polish up our plans, do an interesting variant on something we had done before. I just needed to make some arrangements, to contact the right people to get started. That's where George, Gus and Lou came in. They knew the right people, it would be a foolproof plan... Yes I've always had a weak spot for stories: short stories, novels, good stories, bad stories. Also, I have a weakness for a catchy melody. The songs on this album capture different moods, and tell a story or two. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we did making them.
