Hello everyone.
Well, this maybe a stupid question, but I really don't know and Im very curious: What "Rhye" means? It was mentioned in the music Lilly of the Valley too(I dont need to say "Seven Seas of Rhye", right?).

Thanks

>>I think that "Rhye" was an early 70's leather bar, located near the coast in England. It has 7 restroom stalls, complete with Glory Holes. Hence, "Seven Holes of Rhye". That didn't sit to well with the record company, so they changed it to it's known title.

Interesting theory...:-s
