    Thanks for the comment!

    When I finished all the music for this...I thought....well, what about the melody/lyrics?

    Without going into a lot of boring details...the music took a long time to make...as I did an experiment...recording various chords in cifferent synth voices, and using my drum program to sequence them.

    With all the time I had in it..I just couldn't sacrifice it with my totally non-musical voice .. :)

    I'd forgotten all about this tune but it was always one of my favorites of their later stuff. Your synth programming was spot-on and as always, I enjoyed your playing.

    Thanks a heap, pc.

    I had actually forgotten about that one as well. Was surfing around for another ZZ tune (MIDI file), and just, for whatever reason, downloaded Roughboy.

    A few days later, I had that MIDI file playing while I was doing other stuff...and though...that's a pretty cool tune....and it sorta snowballed .. :)
