Track 8 - "S.O.S.":

Knappy and Dave were busy working on a new song that would become "S.O.S." When they were ready to start tracking the guitar parts they called Billy and asked him if he was available to record.

Billy replied, "I'm on my way."

Knowing Billy lived about an hour from the studio, they stepped out to grab a bite to eat. When they returned to the studio they noticed Billy's car was parked outside and they heard the unmistakable sound of Billy warming up. Nothing could have prepared them for what they were about to see…

Billy, realizing he was not alone noticed the odd look he was receiving from Knappy and Dave and Immediately stopped playing and said "what's wrong?"

All they could say was… "Oh, nothing…"

Realizing that he had forgot his shirt and that he had brought the shiny mirror-ball guitar instead of the acoustic, Billy decided to call it a night and that is how Dave ended up playing guitar on this track.

Fascinating…isn't it?
