This song, along with much of British Steel
was written at Tittenhurst Park, in Ascot, Berkshire, England. The house was the former home of John Lennon (he recorded "Imagine
" there) and Ringo was the owner at the time of the recording of the album, having purchased the residence from his fellow Beatle. Frontman and lyricist Rob Halford told Billboard
: "Just some anger from me, mate. [laughs] God, where was my mind at? I was really f--king pissed... and the music we were making really made you feel that way. Jogging around the lake at Tittenhurst obviously didn't de-stress me."
