Unwigged Musings

There's a great little interview type thing HERE with Michael McKean where he shares stories behind some of the Tap classics.


“Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight”
MM: We needed an opening number. I wanted to write something which was not exactly heavy metal, but a hard-rock shuffle feel to it. And lyrically, something that would trumpet the astounding manhood of the singer.

D: There's a borderline pedophile vibe.

MM: Yeah, tell me about it. "You still got your baby teeth.” That's a pretty horrible line. But it may be my wife's favorite line. No, no, no: “You're too young and I'm too well-hung” is my wife's favorite line.
