Bio

Glenn and Dennis have been friends now for as long as many of Hef's playmates have been living. Glenn was born in a cross-fire hurricane. Dennis was born to circus midgets who loved him very much until a tragic incident involving elephants took their lives. Though life was difficult for Glenn and Dennis in the beginning, it's all right now--in fact it's a gas. Over the years, the two friends have written dozens of incredible songs--sometimes together, sometimes on their own.

Mean Old Man is Glenn and Dennis. Mean Old Man is also one of their best loved songs. Originally performed as a simple harmony accompanied by one guitar and shakers, the song eventually grew into much more before Mean Old Man took it into the studio. Though normally playing guitar, Dennis played drums and percussion (bongos and shakers) on this track. The highlight of the recording occurred when Dennis recorded the bongos naked--as they should be played--for a number of curious spectators. If you listen closely, you can still hear him play them naked. Glenn played the guitars and bass. Short on equirpment, he pulled resources from a number of friends. He borrowed an old Telecaster and original '59 Fender Bassman for the slide work, a P-Bass from one of the original Water recordings, and Taylor going back to the company's early days. After the recording, the equipment was robbed at gunpoint, and Glenn and Dennis still hear about it from their friends, none of whom have been reimbursed in full.
