Hi Jim! Welcome to WOWAY! Thank you so much for being willing to entertain our questions.

In the Bonzai Interview posted on your website, you are quoted

For another Al session, the band was called in to do some backing vocals - on helium!

I've been trying to figure out what song that was for. Do you remember?

Might it have been the ALTV version of "Black or White?"

I asked Bermuda a while back, he couldn't remember either, but he remembers doing it.

4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!
