25 Apr 1983

I recorded with Paul Rodgers

Paul Rodgers had suggested recording a cover of 'These Arms of Mine', an Otis Reading song, for the ARMS benefit and on this day in 1983 we recorded it, along with 'Slippin' and Sliding' - the old Little Richard song as a B-side. It surfaced on Bill Wyman's Willie and the Poor Boys album and Ronnie Wood made a show on the video for this, miming on sax. The video was shot at the Brixton Academy in London. The amazing keyboard player Geraint Watkins was on the original recording but not in the video.
