Produced by Rick Rubin, Mick Jagger’s third solo album was Curt’s first time working with Rubin, and the two continue to work together regularly on further musical projects.
Curt Bisquera says:
“This one was a ‘cattle-call’ audition, and I knew quite a few of the other guys who were trying out. Not to mention any names, but there were some heavy cats. I was asked what I wanted to play and, knowing that Mick was a James Brown fan, I called Cold Sweat.”
“After a 10-minute jam (amazing, by the way) Mick said, ‘You got the gig!’ The recording process lasted about a month, recording basically live in the studio with Mick singing scratch tracks.”
“After finishing the record, we did a few highly visible appearances, including Saturday Night Live and a few other dates. Mick is a real gentleman, a true professional and – what can I say? – a legend. It was a pleasure to work with him.”
