"Back to Avalon" Story - Submitted December 7, 1999

I have all of your albums and I have been enjoying listening to some of the solo stuff from a few years ago, especially "Back to Avalon." I was at that tour in Lake Tahoe in 1988 and it was fabulous. I was curious about the "story" behind the song, "Back to Avalon." Does it hold personal meaning for you? Can you explain, please?

PS. Do you have or can you add a section to the website for frequently asked questions that we as fans can ask you about your music and not just about "big love" and such.

Kenny Replies:
Good idea! In fact, this is it! But, ironically, your question connects directly to "Big Love". "Back To Avalon" was my "last ditch" attempt to ask my first wife to work with me to try to rebuild our relationship. If you look at my face on that cover, you'll see a very sad man.
