When this song took off, Rhythm Heritage had to become more than just a studio band - they had to hit the road to satisfy demand for live performances. Unfortunately for the musicians, a different set of players were chosen to perform the songs on tour. Scott Edwards, who was the bass player on this track, said in his Songfacts interview
: "Rhythm Heritage was nothing but a studio band that did some tricks. After the songs went big, Michael and Steve came to us and said, 'We're going to form a band,' and we would all become a real band, go on the road, tour and do the whole bit. We were feeling like it would be pretty good, be exciting.
But somehow they decided not to take us on the road. Instead, they got some other musicians and took them on the road, and they played it out. I don't know if they couldn't play as good or what happened, but it didn't last more than a couple of months.
But originally Rhythm Heritage was supposed to be a studio band that ended up becoming a real band and going on the road, but it never happened. But it did some good songs and it's still out there. It was a disappointment when we didn't become a real official band and tour."
