Songfacts®:

  • Black Country Communion is an Anglo/American rock supergroup featuring vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa . Though Hughes acts as elder statesman, all four band members are very strong minded individuals. Hughes told Nightwatcher's House of Rock regarding the recording of this song: "I wrote that in half the time that you hear it. At the end of the session Jason just started playing, picked up the groove, and moved it 40 bps higher than what I had it. I was infuriated at first. I was like, 'How can you do that?' But when you listen to the way he plays it, it's like, 'Okay you've got a point.' This is a band where we challenge each other. It's not all tea and biscuits. We're four fiery people. So that also shows."
