The band formed in 1993 after Japanese art students Kazu Makino and Maki Takahashi randomly met Italian twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace at an Italian restaurant in New York.

Left Of The Dial

Paul Westerberg wrote: ''Left of the Dial'' [from Tim] is the story of this girl, a guitar player, Lynn Blakey, who toured with Mitch Easter's Let's Active. We got to be friends. She wanted me to write her a letter, but I never write letters. I figured the only way I'd hear her voice was with her band on the radio, left of the dial on a college station. And one night we did. We were passing through a town somewhere, and she was doing an interview on the radio, left of the dial. I heard her voice for the first time in six months for about a minute. Then the station faded out."

Thunder Road
by Bruce Springsteen
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Happy 50th birthday, Barb. Like many of Springsteen's early songs, these lyrics hint at a perspective beyond his years: "So you're scared and you're thinking maybe we ain't that young anymore." "The songs were written immediately after the Vietnam War, and you forgetĀ­ everybody felt like that then," Springsteen says. "There's quite a sense of dread and uncertainty about the future and who you were, where you were going, where the whole country was going, so that found its way into the record.": https://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/100-greatest-bruce-springsteen-songs-of-all-time-20140116/thunder-road-19691231
