12:17 am
or whatever." anyway, i do it, and then max was like, "let's not touch that, just leave it like that." and so that's how the album starts. and i went to go check to see who wrote it. just -- i mean, i was curious, you know. and so it turns out -- this is so crazy. y'all are going to think i'm lying, but my grandfather's best friend, who i grew up hanging out with in boca, charlie calello, wrote it with bob gaudio from the four seasons. and that really just gave me goosebumps. >> jimmy: wow, so your grandfather knew him? >> yeah, really well. >> jimmy: knew the writer. >> really well.
