"I think me and Wisk opened up a can of worms with this book because a lot of these guys were real emotional, some of them were really hateful towards us because they didn't wanna relive the past. Some of them were very grateful, and some of them were teary eyed. We are talking about guys that probably stopped writing in the late 80's so we are revisiting some childhood memories for them. Bringing out old pictures, reminiscing and it's touching. It's like going back to something you really loved and it just sparks that light in you and yeah, it really brought back the energy and they really, really appreciate us doing this project because its something they have always loved and they walked away from it for whatever reason but now a lot of them have actually gone back to it."
