“I wrote this song five or six years ago. Lyrically, it’s about when I used to get high all the time. And I don’t mean a little high – I mean really fucking high! I used to get so high that I would try to go to the moon. Of course, I didn’t realize that I was already there. [laughs]
“I love the fact that I’m singing with the actual notes of the guitar. The words ‘Everything I tasted, I get so wasted’ are phrased exactly to what I’m playing. That’s what turned me on about the song in the first place. When it releases and goes to the open G chord, it gets really heavy in the middle.
“I think the solo is pretty rip-snortin’, if I do say so myself. It’s a well-constructed tune, so that helps. If the song is really there, then you have a good basis for a solo. Fabrizio did a great job at moving sections around and keeping things tight. And Kenny Aronoff…my God, what a player! The man writes out all of his drum parts. That’s a real drummer for you.”
