Songfacts®:

  • Frampton told Gibson.com how he came up with this song's riff: "That came to me while I was jamming on the couch, watching TV with the sound turned down. I noodle like that all the time. It was such an ominous riff. I think the 'D' may be tuned down. In any case, it's a low tuning. I was just jamming with some loops. A lot of the guitar parts on the album started in front of the TV, with the sound turned off."
