“We knew we wanted to do a Stones song. We had three or four of them on our lists, but Gimme Shelter eventually won out.
“I love the intro – it’s so haunting. And the way the female singer comes in and works off of Jagger with the higher octave…so awesome.
“When we recorded it, we sped it up a little. It just worked for us at a slightly faster tempo. As for the intro, I brought it back in the bridge section. It’s such a great part that it made sense to make it more of a feature in the song. I’m pretty proud at how it turned out.”
