Several years later he was touring with his most recent band Burning Graceland and when coming back from tour decided he was going to go for the bigger entertainment picture in LA in hopes to make it there and one day start his own record label. When he got back from tour a good family friend and producer/creator of all the Batman films, Michael Uslan, was doing a lecture at OU in Athens,Ohio and Talon and his mother went to go to the lecture and have dinner after. During dinner Talon gave Michael the rundown on what his goal was. Michael told him he would have to get to either LA or New York asap to make this happen. So Talon chose LA and told Michael 6 months from this conversation he would find a way to be there and ready.
