  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Glenn Hughes originally penned this song as a leisurely groover, only for drummer Jason Bonham to speed it up. Hughes explained: "The first album had 'No Time', which was slow and groovy. I wrote 'Confessor' that way too, but when Jason heard it he insisted upon playing it – in his own words – like his (ex Led Zeppelin stickman) dad would have done. We're a democratic band and I went along with that. When he turbo-d it up it really came to life."
