Ministry's Cesar Soto came by the morning show to talk about his solo project Man The Mute and his new single "Willow." While talking about the song, Soto revealed the personal story that inspired the new, heavy song.

The song "Willow" and the entire Man The Mute experience is a way for Soto to share his life and experiences with the world. One of those experiences is a chance encounter he had while working and a couple that came into a bar that left a lasting impression on him.

While working as a bartender, Cesar talked about one day during work how he felt a special pull towards a couple that had just walked in. He said he could hear the word "motorcycle." He approached the couple and asked if they believed in higher beings and the spirit world. They said yes. From there, the couple told him about a loved one they had lost, and a mysterious pink bench.
