“Our manager always said that we should cover this song, and for the longest time we weren’t open to the idea. Us do a song with a female sharing the lead vocal? We just didn’t see it.
“As the record evolved, we came around to it. First off, I do love Tom Petty – I think he’s a true punk rocker, the way he went after his record label back in the ‘80s. The guy’s totally cool, and one of the best songwriters ever. And Stevie Nicks is one of my favorite singers, too.
“After we agreed to do it, we needed a female vocalist, and we brought in this girl named BC Jean to sing with Wes. She’s brilliant, and she way she sings off of Wes is killin’. They sang in the booth together and ad-libbed off of each other, kept the whole thing live. It really works.”
