This is the first single from 2
, the second album by Black Country Anglo/American rock super group Black Country Communion. The band's vocalist Glenn Hughes told Musicradar.com
he always saw this as the album's lead single. Said the singer/bassist: "For me, 'Man In The Middle' took the longest of everything to write because I knew in my heart that it would be the first single and video. I had all the parts worked out in my head – total British rock – and knew I wanted to write a song about this f--ked-up rock 'n' roll star. Basically, it was going to be a 'story' song, and the story was about myself. It all sounds rather sad and desperate, but in the end it was a real joy to write, sing and perform, and I even had a good time making the video."
