    What exactly am I hearing on "Strung Out"? I actually wanted to know after I saw that little scrolling thingy. That thing cracks me up.

    Ah, the scrolling thing. Credit goes to Top Timmy for that.

    Anyway, Strung Out is basically just the tapes of Eddie destroying a piano that belonged to Marvin Hamlish. Eddie was staying at Marvin's home, and recorded different sounds like throwing stuff at the piano, and rubbing things like batteries, ping pong balls and silverware across the piano strings.

    Which leads me to two conclusions;

    1. Eddie was a terrible houseguest

    2. Given Eddie's state of mind at the time, Strung Out was probably a perfect title for the song.

    Dude!?, your'e like magic Glenn you really are ... That sums it up all right there but don't forget the screwdrivers that he dropped onto the piano "strings".

    And what kind a battery do ya think he rubbed acroos the strings of the piano? I'd have to say a 9 volt with those two little heads facing downwards toward the string.

    Does he crush a pop can toward the middle of the song?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>At what time of the song do you hear that? I'll listen to it.

    And with Eddie, I'd say even if it is, it's much more likely to be a beer can.
