Kotzen: “This is by far my favorite song on the record. This is my arena; this is where I like to be. I have a million songs that are of this ilk – they’re like my comfort zone.
“When I approached the band about it, I was thinking, ‘We have some aggressive stuff, some shredding stuff, some bluesy songs, but we don’t have something from this element' – and you know, it's a big part of who I am. I asked them how they felt about me playing piano on a song, and they said, ‘What do you have?’ I played it for them, and they really liked it.
“I told Billy that I was struggling with the chorus. I had another chorus for another song, but I was thinking that it might be better for this one. He said, ‘If I were you, I’d use both,’ and he walked out of the room. I started thinking about that, and a half hour later I had it all figured out. The other part worked as an outro. It you have something good, try to find a way to use it.”
