I've read that Will Sergeant said it was from a friend of the band. However, many fans thought it was from their original drum machine they used to use before Pete joined the band.

BTW....I'm a huge Bunnymen fan. I've seen 'em 3 times and have all of their albums. Ocean Rain is one of the best albums to come out in the 80's. In fact, I think that U2 and the Bunnymen were on a parallel course in the early years. U2 released The Unforgettable Fire and the Bunnymen released Ocean Rain. The two bands had some similar sounds to them, but the Bunnymen released their self titled album in '87, and U2 released this album called The Joshua Tree.
....and that's where the parallel course stopped.

But I love their newer stuff. They definitely had a strong comeback. Ian is still a big wa**er though!

Alright....here's another Bunnymen question:

What album does Ian McCulloch say was a big influence for the making of Ocean Rain?

And yeah, the Skynyrd answer was correct.

It was nice to talk to you about the Bunnymen, Hawk. They are one of my favorites too. And yeah, Ian is a wa**er! I use that word all the time-I used to work with a lot of Brits. No one ever gets it. OK I did not google it but I think the answer is David Bowie's Life On Mars??

*********************************

The Ramones got their name from a fake name used by a famous musician when he checked in to hotels. Who was that legendary artist?

I believe the answer is Craig Gannon. I looooooooove the Bluebells and Aztec Camera. He was with them first I believe.

******************************

Speaking of the Bluebells (Sisters great album!!!!!), ex-member Robert Hodgens is now part of a new Glasgow band.  I believe the Proclaimers were involved in this band too. What is their name?

The answer I was looking for was the album titled 'Forever Changes', by the band Love.
