Midnight Sun

Album: Afterglow (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Glenn Hughes told the story of this Who-inspired tune: "I had my wallet stolen in a Starbucks and arrived late at the studio. When I got there the guys were fooling around with a song that sounds quite a lot like The Who, thanks to those Rabbit Bundrick-style keyboards. I picked up my bass and joined in. It's quite a romp; there's a definite vibe of Moon and Entwistle."
