Sure the song 'Endless Wire' has a country feel and Pete *could* write a 
bunch of country tinged songs, and I'm sure Roger would be all over it. 
But, I just don't see Pete doing it at someone else's suggestion.  Whether 
that's Roger, or a highly respected producer/friend.  I just don't see Pete 
doing what someone else says he should do.  Now, if it were *Pete's* idea (I 
know, I'll turn a childeren's book about an Iron Man into my next solo 
album!), that would be different.
