Forever (So Completely) by Kurt Michaels
"This is the 2nd single release from the upcoming Stones From The Garden cd. The video was conceived and directed by Jeremy Applebaum. Many thanks to him and all who participated in the studio recording and in the video shoot. It truly takes a village and I am grateful for mine." — Kurt Michaels

“Forever is an awfully long time. Perhaps even longer than a lunchtime. Although it felt like forever before the lads found me hiding in their van. I’m glad that someone wrote a song about my harrowing experience.”
— Barrington Womble (drummer and occasional singer for The Rutles talking about Forever (So Completely))
