A few days ago I wrote about how John Kalodner pulled “Deuces are wild” out of Pump because, according to Jim Vallance, he didn’t like the title. Quite melodramatically, I said:
“But why, John, WHY? Of all the things you’ve done that are incomprehensible to me, this one really hurts!”.
And then I found this interesting transcription of an interview with John Kalodner where, regarding his work on Pump, he admited:
I made some mistakes as well. I should have put “Deuces Are Wild” on there, which is on the Beavis and Butthead soundtrack. I made a mistake by that.
And suddenly my world is right again!
