“The Howlin’ Wolf sample at the beginning is what makes it for me. That’s him telling Anysley Dunbar how it should feel, but Anysley never felt it the way Howlin’ Wolf did. Basically, we started there and let him guide our band.
“It’s so funny because all of this pre-dates Zeppelin. Yet, when you hear that riff, what does that sound like? It sounds like Whole Lotta Love! But no one knows that it's Howlin' Wolf. They hear snippets of this song and they go, ‘So you’re doing Howlin’ Wolf but you’re also doing Whole Lotta Love.’ No. Howlin’ Wolf did this first.
“I played my plain top ’59 Les Paul, and my friend John McCalister loaned me his ’66 Bluesbreaker Combo, which is awesome. It’s the best one I’ve ever played. I also used an old Fender Reverb Spring – a 1962, I think – which gave off some nice splashiness.”
