Q: I have searched for some authenticity that Lil was actually one of Oppenheimer's daughters (he had one, Katherine, who committed suicide in the Virgin Islands years later), -- can find none. why this?
A: Sorry for just getting to your question. I have never checked this space till today. Can't remember how the writing of Mushroom Cloud Lil began but as the story developed, the character named Lil became part of the landscape. Somehow or other, she got connected to Robert Oppenheimer and turned out to be a killer in my song mostly due to her anger over the fact that her father, Robert, was always tinkering with his atom bomb device and never there when she needed him. After the totally made up story song was completed, I googled Oppenheimer and discovered that Robert and his wife both had love affairs and an unhappy marriage which severely affected their real daughter who first tried to commit suicide by walking out into the ocean in front of Robert's beach home. That didn't work, so she hanged herself. Needless to say, I was taken aback by how close my made up story had come to the real truth.
