"I would like to explain ‘Boomerang’, its meaning and its purpose to me. It was recorded in the spring of 1979 before I wrote and recorded ‘I’m Gonna Miss Ya’, ‘No Handouts’ and ‘The Polyphase’.
Back then I was the founder and bandleader of Broomfield Corporate Jam, trying to imagine which direction to go in. ‘Boomerang’ was like the road map to it all. It was also like a command to myself to stay focused, keep moving forwards, overcome any fears or doubts that I may encounter along the way and to document all of the ups and downs I experienced on my journey.
In July 1978, almost a year before I wrote the song, I told the band that we
were going to make a bold cross-country trip from our home, Miami, to Los Angeles to try and make things happen. I got to work repairing my 1968 Chevy Impala, which I named “Hope” for the trip to take us from coast to coast. It was September 1978, about a week after my 23rd birthday, when the journey began. There were plenty of ups and downs that we encountered along the way. Many months later we returned to Miami. That’s how the concept, title and vision of ‘Boomerang’ began.
