Written by Michael with Bill Bottrell, and recorded by Michael with special guest Slash - from Guns N' Roses - on guitar.
"He sent me a tape of the song that had no guitars other than some slow picking," said Slash. "I called him and sang over the phone what I wanted to do."
Slash, at the time, was just leaving for Africa, so he and Michael managed to work it out so they could record Slash's contribution when he returned from Africa. "I basically went in and started to play - thet was it," said Slash. "Michael just wannted whatever was in my style. He just wanted me to do that - no pressure. He was really in synch with me."
[Teddy Riley's Words About The Song]
Bill Bottrell put in some great production on this track. Because he had his hand in there it ended up sounding perfect. He had the magic touch and had everything levelled up nicely. He's been doing it for so long. He's the best with microphones, and knowing where to sit the instruments on the track. He's really good.
I also like Bruce Swedien who mixed some tracks on this album. I'd never worked with Brucey before that. But I always ask for him as an engineer after working with him on this.
