I created this CD in memory of my brother Patrick. Some of the songs are by artists he introduced me to, such as Voivod, Manowar, and Metallica. We were both into that kind of thing at about the same time, although he was always a bit further ahead of the curve than I was. There are a couple of songs that I was listening to a lot while he was in the hospital: Vapour Trail, and the Zevon songs, specifically. Then, there’s some stuff that just seemed appropriate, like “Wish You Were Here”.
