It's a really cool mountain sunset type thing, I'm interested to know where that is. It reminds me a lot of where I live, which is near San Francisco. Considering the songs were written during the residencies including SF, i don't think its far-fetched. Anyone know?

The photo was taken by Billy himself in SF when he was 12.

"really cool" is subjective.

Well we aren't too sure as to the orgin of these songs. You can say the Rose March is a SF residency song although it debuted in 2006 at the Townshed shows. We also have word that The Crux was debuted at the Townshed shows. As to the others, no info is provided.

As to the pic, it's my street corner. I shoot my bee-bee gun at that stop sign everyday during the time of the pic (sunset). Billy came by, almost got hit, took a pic, and there ya go.
