Vanilla Fudge drummer Carmine Appice played drums on this track. In a Songfacts interview, he explained
: "I came home one day and there was a message on my machine from [producer] Bob Ezrin. He said, 'Hey Carmine, I'm in the studio with Pink Floyd and there's a track that's just screaming for some Carmine fills.' I called him back, I said, 'Where's Nick Mason?' He said, 'He's here, but he's a bit rusty and everybody wants a bit of a change, so they're bringing in guest drummers.' So I went down and did it, it was pretty wild. Nick was there. I said, 'Why aren't you playing?' He said, 'Well, I've been racing my cars, my calluses are soft...' Bob said they were just looking for a little different inspiration from the drumming. All I did was fill up a 24-track with drum parts and they edited it all together. I didn't hear the whole drum part until the album came out. Every time I'd ask Bob, 'What about it?' he'd have one word: 'Daring.'"
