Right. How can it be the primer on adolescence if it's
also a spiritual quest? "I went back to the
preacher/Full of lies and hate/I seem to scare him a
little/So he showed me to the golden gate..." And with

Been there, done that. Tommy in LA, remember? Besides,
who wants them to turn into Santana. Carlos has no
cred with me anymore...he's become a sideman. The Who
would become a backup band.

It's been too many years. I don't recall.

It's a cynical time of our lives.
