It was a chess playing coffee house out there. It was so bad…uh…so bad, people playing chess out there, Uh…that’s all they thought about out there was chess and chess and chess. People come up to me, you play your song, you play you a real quiet song. In the middle of the song you hear “Check” and “Hey, that was a good move” and all kinds of stuff like that.
