These backstage passes got us everywhere in the arena, and over a year-and-a-half I got to meet Freddy Mercury & Brian May; Van Halen; The Who; Ozzy Osbourne; Richie Blackmore; and others.

When I wrote "I Really Didn't Mean It!", I was thinking of a 'Buck Owens meets the Rolling Stones in 1965 with the drummer from Blondie' kind-of-thing. Throw in some Buddy Holly too.
