opens his Still Climbing
album with this track, which features a special guest appearance by Alter Bridge/Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti
. West told the story of the song to Ultimate Classic Rock
: "As soon as we're born man… you know, it's like you buy a new car, you drive it off the lot, as soon as you drive away, it depreciates 25 percent," he explained. "But the song itself, my wife Jenny, she would send me lyrics on my iPad, and I'd work on the song, maybe I needed a lyric. After I finished that track, I sent it to Slash, I wanted his opinion, because I really respect his opinion, and he wrote me back and said, 'You can't get any heavier than that, man!' It is a heavy track. I was going for that, but not just a bunch of bulls--t."
