Mark Olson: Would you trust this man with an ambulance?

"Everything on the record, every single line, happened to me in my life," says Olson. "The first line was about when Vic and I moved to Joshua Tree and this wonderful guy from South Africa had read about us and he came to live with us for a year. Then one day his girlfriend comes from South Africa, and she comes up to me and says, 'I've come to fetch Carl.' I thought that was the most beautiful expression of love I've ever heard. She came to fetch him, to take him home."
