Sting explained to The Sun the inspiration behind this hilarious song, which is a bonus track on the Super Deluxe version of The Last Ship album: "Billy Connolly sat down with me one day and talked about welders. He said, 'Yeah, they're all crazy because of the fumes and they all sing. If you put the helmet down, you have an echo chamber and they all think they're Elvis Presley.' So I wrote this song about a guy who thinks he's the king of rock 'n' roll. It's such a rich landscape of themes."
The Isley Brother's song, "Contagious," peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100. This meant that the band of brothers became the first group to score a Top 50 hit in six consecutive decades on the chart.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
