“I think I’m on all of the tunes. I co-wrote Her Town Too with James and J.D. The three of us decided to get together and write one night. We went to J.D.’s house. Actually, J.D. called me and asked me to come because he was with James, but he didn’t really know him; he didn’t know what to do with him.
“I got there, and we all got a nice head full of spirits. [Laughs] And we’re plunking at guitars here and there, just doing out thing. Suddenly, James kind of fell on the main riff of the tune, and I looked at J.D. and said, ‘Get a cassette player. This is it.’ So, while J.D. is off looking for a cassette player, I’m sitting there just trying to memorize everything that James is doing, ‘cause of course, the minute you turn a recorder on, everybody is like, ‘What did I do?’
“The music came first, and then we wrote the lyrics. My gig on that was, I was the one who kept the boat in a forward direction. I also contributed what I think is one of the better lines of the tune, and James has always complimented me on it. The song is basically about Peter Asher and his wife breaking up. ‘She got the house and the garden/ he got the boys in the band.’ It was based on reality. I was so thrilled when it become such a hit.”
