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.
