I think whenever you are trying to establish something new, you have to draw a line and put everything that came before that behind you.
"John Doe"" for males, ""Jane Doe"" or ""Jane Roe"" for females, or ""Jonnie Doe"" and ""Janie Doe"" for children, or just ""Doe"" non-gender-specifically are used as placeholder names for a party whose true identity is unknown or must be withheld in a legal action, case, or discussion. The names are also used to refer to a Dead body/corpse or hospital patient whose identity is unknown. This practice is widely used in the United States and Canada, but is rarely used in other English-speaking countries including the United Kingdom itself, from where the use of "John Doe" in a legal context originates. The names Joe Bloggs or John Smith are used in the UK instead, as well as in Australia and New Zealand.More John Doe on Wikipedia.

I'm just happy to be part of a 'sophomore effort,'.
I don't know of any other band that has two vocalists that can sing together without competition.
Yeah, I've always thought it had sort of a jazz improvisation aspect to it.
Restraint can be tough. I've made a point to learn how to make a slow song have as much impact as a fast song. That's a challenge I've given myself, because it's easy to just get out there and blast through a bunch of things and feel as though you're exciting the audience. If you can do that with a slow song, then you really have some variety and some range.
Well, 'help' is the important word there because there were a lot of other bands back in those days doing similar stuff.
