“I think Nobody Told Me and Starting Over were started in the first couple of days of each other during the Double Fantasy sessions. But the funny thing is, there’s no difference in my mind as to the sessions for Double Fantasy and Milk and Honey, because the songs were all recorded in one go. The songs that are on Double Fantasy were just the first batch that John picked. I’m sure he and Yoko each picked their favorites, and then they assembled the album.
“The idea was to go back into the studio in January of 1981, finish the overdubs and mix it and then have a second record in the can so they could go out and tour, which obviously never happened.
“For Milk and Honey, I know I didn’t do any overdubs, and to me it sounds like what we did in the studio live. So it’s funny that Nobody Told Me ended up on the album, because it was one of the first ones we cut. I played my ’65 SG Jr. and the black Les Paul that I used on Station To Station, and then I bought a Sardonyx because John had one. The bulk of the album was on my Les Paul and SG Jr., which I played through my 100-watt Marshall.”
