“One of my friends said that everyone should have a ‘career song,’ and I would say that School Days might be just that for me. It’s kind of a bass anthem. Wherever I go and play, anywhere in the world, people still want to hear that song.
“We made the album quickly. Most songs were one or two takes – we moved fast. I really dug in and played kind of raw. I remember during one of the songs, the engineer at Electric Lady said to me, ‘Now, that’s a bass solo!’ I was going for it.
“Of all my albums, this one has the most attitude. I wasn’t really angry or anything, but my playing was fierce and unapologetic. I was very passionate about what I was doing. Maybe that’s why this has been one of my biggest sellers.”
