Only fond memories fill the otherwise dreary surroundings of his childhood: feral cats, violent neighbors and a makeshift junkyard the kids used as a playground.

Huh. Well I hope whatever they're trying to tell you blows your mind (in a good way). Thanks for responding, most musicians I've interacted with aren't very interested in talking to someone they're not trying to go home with, if ya know what I mean. It's the best when someone can surprise you!
