“Joe Pizza wrote this one a while ago. He played it for me, and I loved it. It’s a cool boogie, but it’s got its own kind of feel to it. It doesn’t sound like the same old thing. It swings and rocks.
“Joe wrote it on piano, which I really liked because I tend to play differently when I hear a song that was composed on the piano. I hear the spaces in the changes in a new way. When the guitar parts aren’t mapped out, I can go at them without any preconceived ideas.
“There’s an acoustic guitar part on the song that I originally played. I was happy with it, but not entirely. Then one day Steve Lukather came by the studio, and I told him, ‘Steve, you can play an acoustic boogie better than me. Why don’t you take this part?’ He did and he nailed it. He creates a neat pad in the song.”
