    Default Im sure its been discussed but I dont recall..

    What were the origins of the songs from ADKOT that werent demos? Songs like Y&YB, Chinatown, As Is, HBSD, Stay Frosty etc.

    Were these riffs that Ed had that were perfected, or did Dave bring these to the table, or both? Ive seen the videos where Dave told the meaning of, but I dont recall the origins.

    AS-IS was a re-write of "2 Burritos and a Rootbeer Float"

    Earlier than that, friend.
    Check some of those "Eddie behaving badly at NAMM" clips on YT. The As Is riff is in there, along with other stuff I wish had made the track on the album, even though I hardly ever listen to ADKOT nowadays...

    It sounded more like a "maybe these chords might fit together....guess not."

    Actually there's one more. The chorus melody ("Drive my search engine home...") is the same as as "Voodoo Queen"'s.

    And the HBSD chorus melody is the same as "Scarecrow"'s from those sessions.

    Another is the breakdown riff in "The Trouble with Never," which is the "Peace of Mind" main riff.

    "China Town" might be a song Gary was referring to from the '99 sessions for the follow-up to VH3. He said it had a crazy tapping intro that sounded like aliens or something along those lines.
