In 1990 and 1991, King's X spent a lot of time on the road as an opening act for AC/DC on the Razors Edge tour. This was a dream gig for King's X, which formed just a few years earlier. It was also incredibly draining and rather challenging - AC/DC fans had to be won over night after night, and no matter how well King's X played, when the headliners hit the stage with "Thunderstruck
," it was a mind eraser.
"Lost In Germany" was written by King's X guitarist Ty Tabor after returning from Europe. "That one is the only song I have ever written in my head in its entirety," he said in King's X: The Oral History
. "While I was taking a shower, I heard all these parts - the guitar parts, the harmonies. I heard everything."
