I've been told I look pretty good in a suit, and I secretly enjoy wearing
it! Makes me feel powerful, and the chicks dig it. And what's this
conspiracy? Nobody asked me to join! Do I get to wear a suit all the time
if I'm in the conspiracy?
I don't think the suit was it. I believe that Allan decided not to get
interested in looping or the echoplex entirely because of my haircut. At
the time I foolishly believed he would look past such things and evaluate
the echoplex and the idea of looping on it's own merits, and according to
his own musical needs, which is what he appeared to be doing to me. But
you holdsworth fans have now enlightened me....
