I read Zanes book, and this was my impression. Stan was great on the road and he also was able harmonize with Tom so well it added richness to Tom’s voice and seemed seamless. However, Stan was not one to enjoy the recording process. He didn’t like the repetitiveness of spending hours in the studio while they moved the mic a few millimeters and doing the same thing over and over. I think he thought it was stupid and not was not quiet in his discontent. Then there was the fact he wanted to live the rock n roll lifestyle but Mike wanted his family there. I remember Stan telling Mike he hated the sound of his wife’s voice. If you listen to that early intro ‘it’s just the normal noises in here.’ That’s her voice. Stan had a point.
