This song is about my grandpa and the basement of his house in West Hempstead, Long Island, NY. As kids, we always thought the basement was a cool and mysteries place... we had no idea that at one time it was a "Speakeasy" and grandpa made "bathtub gin"... go figure! It had a bar made from an old casket ( he worked at Calvary cemetery in Queens NY). What a place to play some blues...
