    Things were getting hectic in the mid to late 8o's in nyc. Club people and such were dying and they were just discovering aids. No one really knew what was the cause, only it could be sexually transmitted. I was in my prime working the club scene ready to embark on my rise to the top. Was it the most important thing to me? S** was a tremendous lure and I could not ever give up that allure. Settling was not in my vocabulary. I met a woman and realized that sleeping around was sure to get me killed. The Clash and Jam were disbanding, and when I heard Paul Weller do this song I accepted that I didn't need to be King. That the love I shared with my now wife was all of the possession that I needed and I didn't need to prove anything to anyone. Only my Love and the love of my family and friends. This song will always have a special place in my heart and my life.
