“The song is compact and funky. I like the way it opens up with Don doing this great horror movie keyboard part. Actually, he used to play for silent movies, so he knows that stuff backwards and forwards.
“The riff sparked the lyrical content of the song and the title. Ian always likes to spice things up and get light when he can, so he went in that direction. He’s the guy who doesn’t try to be ‘heavy metal.’ The riff is straight-ahead heavy, so that’s covered.
“The solo is pretty straight-up until the end, where I harmonize the arpeggiations with a simple little part. It was just feeling a bit simple, so I spiced it up. It sort of slipped from being a solo into more of a melodic line. What sounds like a Theremin is actually a steel guitar. Bob lives in Nashville, so he had a friend of his come in and put that on."
