When Dave recorded the first version of the song with his group the Blasters, producer Nick Lowe gave him some life-changing advice.
The album was released in 1993. Adam Duritz was about 29 years old at the time.
I tried to find where he lived. Wikipedia sais the following:
Duritz grew up in Baltimore, Maryland; Boston, Massachusetts; El Paso, Texas; and Berkeley, California. He is the son of Gilbert and Linda Duritz, both physicians. Duritz has a younger sister, Nicole. Duritz attended the prestigious Taft School, and graduated from the Head-Royce School in Oakland, California.
I can't find a Sullivan street in google maps in the following cities: Balimore, Maryland; El Paso, Texas; Berkeley, California.
I can find it in: Boston, Massachusetts.
But i suppose Boston is was the first City he lived in, so that doesn't make sense.
Then i found this:
"I had this girlfriend who lived in San Francisco
I lived in Berkeley
She lived on the far side on San Francisco and
Her mother came out to live with her from from New York
and her mother was really, really, really catholic
and so she could never stay at my house
We have to take her home every night
It was a long drive all the way from the hills of Berkeley
down to the freeway and on to the bridge and across the bay into San Francisco
She lived on the far fu**ing side of the city
and every time I drove back I had to let her go and you know
It's like on top of everything else."
Yet, San Francisco has no Sullivan street..
"I had to let her go
I can never have stayed
She could never stay
and I don't know one day
I just had this, I get this feeling lot
I think I wrote a bunch of songs about it
Just knew it wasn't going to last much longer
Not that i wasn't in love with her
and it was even after her mother got the f**k out of town
but I was thinking a lot about those drives
because I started thinking one day it was just going to be over soon
I don't know for me sometimes it doesn't matter how good it is
It's s just going to be over soon so
I wrote this song
I don't know why I called it what I did because
I didn't leave anywhere near any place named this but
I wrote a song called Omaha I never been there before in my life
When we first toured in Omaha the mayor tried to gives me the key to the city
I was so embarrassed that I didn't go
I could have had these hug f**king now but I don't got it
But this is a song about something matters and you just know it is going to go
and it is about someone name Susan
I don't' know where she is now but it is called Sullivan Street"
So, long story short, it isn't real.. :/ bummer to find out this way
