“This is another Freddie King song – it’s one of the first numbers I wanted to do for this record. I love drummers and piano players, and on the original album that this track appeared on you’ve got Leon Russell playing piano. The piano carries the whole song, in a way; it’s got a greasy, almost hypnotic groove to it.
“Back in the day, the bluesmen had this thing where they were ladies’ men, and they’d be talking about, you know, how awesome they were. [Laughs] This is just one of those songs – ‘I’m the boogie man, no one can do it like I can.’ It’s that fun kind of boasting.
“For so many years, guys like BB, Albert Collins and Freddie King wouldn’t really play throughout their songs. They’d only play fills and then they’d solo. Live, I normally play rhythm guitar along with the fills and solos. So when we did this track, I did it like the guys did back in the day: I laid out and let the band carry the song, and then I did the fills and the solo, just like Freddie would have done.”
