Don Was: There was a period just after Christmas and before the vaccine was available to us when there was a spike in new cases of Covid. Going to the studio was deemed to be too risky so we set up a control room in a tent in your backyard and finished the album in there! I've been making records for 40 years and that was a first! How did you feel about that?
JM: I think that was the perfect ending to making Sob Rock. We'd all looked out for each other for so many months that even when it became too dangerous to even go into the studio, we saw it through up here at my house. I sang the vocals for "Wild Blue" in my bedroom! That line about "on a bed of gray"? That's from me looking over at my bed with a gray comforter on it! We saw it through.
