    May be of interest to you, Bill. I researched Hermann Jesse, which led me to Steppenwolf. From Wikipedia:

    The name-change from The Sparrows to Steppenwolf was suggested to John Kay by Gabriel Mekler, being inspired by Hermann Hesse's novel of the same name.

    The term "Heavy Metal" came from the movie Easy Rider. So Heavy Metal was wrought in LA, CA.

    And live an endless life."

    You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
