It’s an industrial city, it’s rich, it’s poor, it’s black and white, so you’ve got this real fight, this real “We gotta get out of this place” type of feeling, you know, and I grew up with all those bands, we played our gigs together. Musically, I think, Detroit’s probably one of the best cities. And all that great… that great Motown influence: that also came out in the white bands.
