Early 1997: "I am recording a lot of my own music (mostly songs on bass, drums, and piano). I don't know if any BR fans would like it, but maybe I will make it available with the expressed statement that it is not like BR in any way. Do you think anyone would be interested? Anyway, it is music that has been evolving over the last 10 years and never saw the light of day because BR was not appropriate. It is music I feel a strange compulsion to record however, and since I always am thinking of songs I think it is a good indication of who I am".
In May 1997 Greg said some of the stuff he was composing was a lot like Runnin' Fast, except -he said- he is now a better composer, lyicist and recordist and so the material will be much better. When asked how he comes up with all the amazing melodies he said "I hear voices in my head; not many people do". The fact is most of BR's vocal melodies come from Greg's head, even on many songs credited only to Brett on the albums.
