“I played that riff in Alter Bridge; it was called Johnny’s Song because our buddy [Major League baseball player] Johnny Damon was listening to our rehearsal when we were putting it together, and he loved it.
"But that riff didn’t have a vocal melody; it was just an intro riff. It had a different part for a verse and a completely different chorus.
"We were listening back, and thought we had better songs, so we scrapped it. I went back to that riff and wrote a melody over the top. It’s one of the album’s most positive songs.”
