One day Kurt Cobain and Tom were carrying on a conversation and I felt a little ignored. So, to entertain myself I started singing, “Kill the Wabbit” from “What’s Opera, Doc?

That wasn’t my only contribution. Over the years they would ask my favorite movies and actors who had made an impression on me. One such movie happened to be Kenneth Branagh’s adaption of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing released in ’93. At about the same time of this movie I had also taken notice of commedian and actor Eddie Izzard.
Yes, even Kurt’s love of turtles had a meaning. Turtle is the nickname I gave Joe Elliott of Def Leppard.
