I got this out of the book "Road Mangler Deluxe", by Phil Kaufman (Franks
road manager in 1979), pages 159-160:
We got stuck in a bus on the way to a huge concert (125,000 people) in
Saarbrucken, Germany. We were playing with Joan Baez, Ten Years After, The
Tubes and others. I said to Frank, 'We got to get there two to three hours
early because it's a small town. " He said, "Oh, fuck that. " So the tour
bus got stuck in traffic. We were going through the traffic and I had my
Wild Turkey sandwich. I was sitting in the back and having a little drink.
I went into the toilet which was located in the middle of the bus. Halfway
through my piss, I jokingly started screaming and everybody was looking at
me. I cried, "Frank, why does it hurt when I pee?" and everybody laughed.
By the time we had gotten through the crowd to the venue, he had written a
song called "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?" scored all the parts, given it
out to all the guys in the band and made them play it that day. Needless
to say, the band told me to shut my fucking mouth in the future. The song
is on an album called "Joe's Garage" and if you see that album, you'll
find a credit on the back which reads, "Special thanks to Phil Kaufman for
asking the eternal question: Why does it hurt when I pee?"
