Guitarist Dean DeLeo commented to Musicradar.com
: "Basically, it's a country song presented in a rock format. We seem to be able to do that without really trying.
But now that I say that, I'm reminded that I was listening to a bit of country music before we made this record. There's two cats who just blow my mind: Jimmy Bryant, who was a fast Tele picker, and Speedy West, who played pedal steel. The recordings they did in the late '50s and early '60s were unreal.
I am not putting myself in their league at all, but they did inspire me quite a bit, as does Jimmy Page, of course - I do a bit of him in the solo."
