Текст песни: I was born Jonathon Aaron Steel, to the parents of William and Elizabeth steel. I am a Leo, born under the sign of the lion and I was raised in a lower middle class family with only one brother Michael whom I love dearly. He was five years my senior. My father's nickname was Red which I could never understand why because his hair was sandy blond. Nevertheless, the name stuck.

Music videos were made for "The Idol" and "Hold on to my Heart" . The movie was eventually not released at the time, but some 25 years later, with ReIdolized (The Soundtrack to the Crimson Idol). Recording information: Recorded and mixed at Fort Apache Recording Studio, Hollywood, CA.
