Commentsby The Pretenders (appear courtesy of Warner Music UK, Ltd.) (P) & (C) 1999 Viacom International Inc. Chrissie Hynde: "I was writing 'Back On The Chain Gang' when Jimmy and Pete were still alive and in the band, and we were trying to work the song out at our sound checks. Jimmy was real excited about it. He died before I finished the song. I think I kind of dedicated it to him when I finished it. I was trying to work out who I could get to play on that song, so I pulled in Jimmy Scott's favorite guitar player, Billy Bremner, who had played in a band called Rock Pile. Billy came up with that awesome riff in the beginning."
