In the course of recruiting other musicians, I mentioned to Robert Sole (Streetfighter) that I was doing this song, and he volunteered to play bass. I asked him if he could do some background harmonies, and he surprised me by delivering an absolutely gorgeous three piece background ensemble. The advantages of having talented friends.
When I approached my friend John Genua (The Rustlers) about doing a song, he illustrated perfectly why it’s a good idea to let the guests pick the songs – he’s been doing a live stream every week and had just added ‘My Back Pages’ to his set list. I honestly never would have thought to do that song, but as soon as he mentioned it I was all in. We ended up alternating lead vocals on the verses.
