We got a lead singer. We got a keyboard player. Let's see what are we going to call the ban. They used to be a pizza place called two guys from Italy. We're not going to be two guys from Venice. Can't do Ray Rayan Jim that you know, that sounds like a folk rock duo or something he said, no, no, no the band is going to be called the doors. And I said what that's the stupidest name. I EV all wait a minute. You mean like the doors in your mind, like the doors of perception and Morrison said exactly and I said, oh too much men psychedelic.
