And he gave me a copy of the script and he said you know we're trying to create this dual and he was working with some other people but it wasn't quite working because it was turning more into a jam and it needed more theater in it. You know it needed more theatrical dynamics and I'm that guy you know the ham I'm is cooking right here right and it was all laid out in the script you know it's like At this point Eugene does this and then Jack Butler does that and there's one line that said that you know Jack Butler ripped out with a riff that sounded like a freight train. It said that in the script so really. Yeah and I said Freight great train. What does what would Jack Butler sound? Like plan freight train on the guitar. So that's the launch Congo.
