Fast As I Can

Album: Stone Temple Pilots (2010)
  • Guitarist Dean DeLeo explained the song title to "There's a very good reason why it's titled Fast As I Can, because it's the fastest song we ever recorded. I think it's something like 196bpms. That's like, way fast!"
  • Dean DeLeo discussed his contribution to this song: "Another highpoint for me as a guitar player. I was able to express myself with a lot of groovy country licks, using a clean Strat tone. The solo really gets me off. For the chorus I use a Danelectro, and the solo is a Strat and the verses are a Les Paul - I really mix it all up here. Fun guitar stuff."
