The rarest of rarities, this jewel of a shirt was designed by Andie Airfix and printed in the tiniest of batches and kept within the tightest possible circle.
Rick Allen had really been through an intense period of trauma and recovery, and this affirmation was a crucial one for everyone in the band.
Rick remembers "Well, the album took so long to make and the record company just kept pounding us about it. Mutt Lange - he was always like it will be done when it's done. Our Manager jumped on the idea of making these shirts with these little slogans and I loved it. It just took off within our circle and it seemed like there was a new slogan every other day. We were all showing a united front. We had so much faith in the record and everybody that was working with us particularly Mutt. And if Mutt said it wasn't finished, then it wasn't finished, and there was nothing we could really do about that. Because you know, his will is extremely strong. But I think his intuition in making sure that the record was perfect before we released it was the right one."
BACK: MUTT LANGE DOES EXIST. RICHARD ALLEN IS PLAYING DRUMS. WE ARE RECORDING A NEW ALBUM. PHONOGRAM HAS SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON IT
