Gloria Sklerov recalls the writing of Hollywood Seven: “On the way home on the freeway, I passed a motel called “Hollywood Eight” which intrigued me. I started to think about who might be checking in there. When I got together with Harry Lloyd, we discussed it and decided to change the name to “Hollywood Seven” because it ‘sang’ better. We then plotted the story and it all sort of came to be like it was meant to. We were thrilled when we heard Jon’s record because they used some of the synth riffs we had used on the demo and his vocal was great… As a writer, I was very proud of Jon’s version.”
