Yeah, this makes sense to me. Jim said though they ended up giving up on "Dead ringer" - it's in the interview "The other side of the tracks" or something like that, where he talks about "The dream engine" and how terrible "Grease" is - because they just struggled trying to put Meat's vocals together and couldn't go on. That's when they stepped out, I believe, and Meat and Galfas finished it off.
