“Most of the tracks I’ve chosen are me playing with John McVie, but this one is an example of the two of us being hired as a rhythm section. We approach our music like that: We’re old school.

This was Warren Zevon picking up the phone and saying, ‘I need the section on this one.’
“Being in the pocket. It’s the one thing I’ve lucked into, and it’s the one thing, by the people I’ve been privileged to have played with – mostly, in truth, Peter Green and of course John – that I got out of it. It's survived me.
“It’s the classic Mac rhythm section laying down a bit of grease for Warren Zevon, who is sorely missed.”
