This song by former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown has always intrigued me – from the opening orchestration I was hooked. The song didn’t really do much here in the States, but in England it won the NME award for Best Single of 2001. The lyrics are an exercise in acronyms, with the first letter of each word spelling ‘f.e.a.r.’ Managing the orchestration and synth work was a lot of fun to do.
And of course I put a solo on the end. What guitarist wouldn’t want to solo over that gorgeous chord progression?
