In Their Words: “’Wedding Song’ will never be played at anybody’s wedding. Its more of an ‘anti-wedding song.’ Sometimes you know somebody’s making a big mistake and there’s not a lot you can do about it.
I don’t think there’s a better guitar player in the world than D. Clinton Thompson. I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember, and it was a real treat to have him play on a song where it’s appropriate for him to really cut loose. Donnie’s a consummate player and, like Lou Whitney, he’s always been more concerned with what’s best for the song than with showing off. ‘Wedding Song’ was built for speed and Donnie really lets it fly. The result is pretty spectacular.” — Fred Wickham
