(C)ome to think of it, I play synthesizer and three other instruments on Heaven on the new album. That's just me, Mick and Charlie on that track - only nobody realizes it because there are no credits on the album.
I played on Heaven, I played alleged piano on Heaven. That was laid down with just Charlie, Mick and I, I think. I don't think anyone else was in the room. But the session was called for like midnight and Mick and Charlie were the first to arrive and Mick started playing the chord sequence and I sat down at the piano and started following along and next thing I knew it sounded really good. So I told the assistant to roll it and we put some things on it and it sounded very good.
Yeah (I wrote that)... I'm afraid it wasn't a tribute to (John Lennon). I don't know why it was called that.
