What inspired “Clear Blue Skies”? Was it challenging to write from the perspective of a white father and his son?

Breeze Brewin: It ain’t nothing that literary license shouldn’t lend itself to. I think it get’s the kind of response that it gets because of the timing. It recognized the shift in the fan base, but deeper. It went beyond music. You had two white cultures: One that was trying to preserve the “glory days” and another that was becoming part of a more diversified community. It was never obviously stated that the son was a hip-hop head, but it’s implied. I think that it works because it respects both perspectives. Initially, the thought was not that organized, if anything it was more organic. All we knew was there were real, existing people on both sides of the argument. Why not combine and force that conflict?
