"Yoko’s tune Walking On Thin Ice was cut during the Double Fantasy sessions, and it's absolutely one of my top recorded moments. John and I did some really cool stuff on that record. So let’s be sure to give that one an honorable mention.
"I really enjoyed doing her album Season Of Glass, too, even though John was gone. Phil Spector was there, although that lasted about a week and a half until she got rid of the crazy bastard.
“I was so glad when Phil was gone. He would only talk to us through the engineer, and he had the control room all blacked out. It was a shame because I was really looking forward to working with Phil Spector, but it was nothing like what I expected it would be like. I think Yoko got the vibe that he was really affecting the band in a bad way. We were a band by then, so once he was gone we just worked with the engineer and got it down.
“The sessions were only seven months apart, so it was almost like we were continuing — just John wasn’t there. But I did some really cool stuff on that record, and it was really good to get together with everyone from Double Fantasy. It was like it was a process for Yoko to deal with the situation by making music with all the same guys. Losing John right after the sessions was really hard, and to never see the guys again would have been awful. It was a great thing for us to get back together.”
