Bassist JoJo Garza told the San Antonio News July 4, 2008 how this song came about: "I was here at the house, and I was jamming around with an acoustic guitar, recording. I just started playing. I had the music before I had the words were even done. We got together, us three, and finished it off."
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
