After the original ARMS show at the Royal Albert Hall, there was great interest from the artists involved when it was suggested that we do a short American tour. Bill Graham, with his entrepreneurial and promotional skills, magically set up a number of dates in the US. Everybody came over with the exception of Steve Winwood, whose slot was taken by Joe Cocker. I’d invited Paul Rodgers to come on the ARMS tour and he graciously accepted. We had a good chemistry onstage and that added a hell of a lot to my set. At the time I had been writing some new material with Paul, including Midnight Moonlight. It was great to see Ronnie Lane again and there was a spirit of goodwill and camaraderie between the artists that endured throughout the tour.
