All The Plans We Made

Album: All The Plans (2009)
  • songfacts ®
  • This song features Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood. Starsailor frontman James Walsh told Billboard magazine: "We kept asking him if he'd be up for playing some guitar on the record, and at the time he was busy promoting the film (Shine a Light), so there were a couple of months there where he just wasn't available to do it. Then I got a call about half past six one evening from his son Jesse saying, 'My dad really wants to do this now. Can you be at the studio (at) nine o'clock?' So from having sort of given up the ghost it all came together out of the blue. It was amazing; he stood there playing the guitar, saying the song reminded him of 'Maggie May' - quite high praise, indeed."
