Songfacts®:

  • The title track of The Winery Dogs' second album is according to bassist Billy Sheehan, "a blast to play." He explained to About.com: "I like that there's a lot of air in between the parts and places to breathe. When we come in it has a lot of high impact too. I love that track."

    "One bass line I play actually came from a Stanley Clarke bass line that I learned back in the 70s when Stanley and Jaco Pastorius were the two bass gods," Sheehan added. "I gravitated more towards Jaco but I loved them both."
  • The song's music video was directed by Vicente Cordero and features performance footage that was shot during The Winery Dogs' US tour in the fall of 2015. We also see the band strolling through a casino.
