The Owl and the Pussy Cat - Background
This song was written in memory of two friends; Andrew "Otis" Harrison and Steve Gore, both great musicians with whom I was priviliged to play, both with a passion for life and music and both of whom passed away far, far too soon.
The song evolved from one I originally wrote for Otis, called "Drumming in My Dreams", which, frankly was not worthy of him . When Steve left us, I decided to try again and wrote this as a tribute to both of them .
Otis was a drummer and Steve a bassist; I like to think that heaven now has a wicked rhythm section.
