Although born in Arizona on this day in 1978, Jake Shears was brought up in Seattle; while attending Los Angeles' Occidental College but visiting Lexington, Kentucky, Shears was introduced to Scott Hoffman. Years later, in New York City, the two met again and formed Scissor Sisters.
Take Your Mama was the band's follow-up to its first single, a cover version of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb; both songs - along with Laura, Mary, and Filthy/Gorgeous - appeared on the band's eponymous debut album.
