Down the hallway forty years ago
And what became much harder was so easy then
Opening up and letting go
Talking to each other as we wait for sleep
The angel in the detail soon arrives
Spreading her wings over every memory
And keeping all our hopes alive"
It's fairly well known that Tim and Neil Finn's brotherhood is a difficult one. Initially Neil joined his brother's band Split Enz before he left to form Crowded House. In the early 90's they started work on a Finn brothers album that eventually formed songs for 'Woodface', Crowded House's most successful and acclaimed album. Tim seemingly left with a flea in his ear shortly afterwards.
They have remained close but continue to be openly critical of each other. Neil noted "being a perfectionist, to me, is wanting it to be as absolutely as good as it possibly can and leaving no stone unturned. There's a lot of love there and I'm just grateful to have a brother."
