They were more than twelve months of each other bigger abroad and the street from each other's children they were almost inseparable now.
And on major talk ten MM a -- and I I talked to Jerry and Jimmy both briefly very briefly on and they were both a little reluctant to participate -- effort as you can imagine.
I spent a lot of time with Mickey -- Have developed and -- friendship with him not talk to an extensive number of -- -- members so it's really.
I think it's safe to say well recent.

It very clearly why the -- -- -- direction they went when you understand the family influence on our -- -- Powell himself at half atrophy.
Well in fact -- all three had very close relationships with their mothers they had a -- influences from church music.
But there were subtle differences in the way that their mothers and their families and push them Jerry was forced.

Whereas -- parents much more strongly pushed him in the direction of the church.
