Andrew Gold on “Lonely Boy”
Andrew - I sort of knew that it was a strong song and I knew that when we went in to arrange it with the band which was Linda Ronstadt's band. It was Mike Botts on Drums, Kenny Edwards on Bass, Guitar, Waddy Wachtel on Guitar and my self. We rehearsed it before we went out on tour and I was opening up for Linda (Ronstadt) during this period of 1976. We arranged it before we went out and originally the bridge was going to be this soft little thing and Waddy said. "Why don't you kick it up" to give it more energy so I thought okay lets try it and it sounded great. So, the band really had a good hand in the arrangement of that song. I played piano and the lead on that is Waddy not me. I will say that when we went out on tour that song was really popular even before people heard it on the radio, before it was a hit. I remember a couple of times people would applaud right after that big guitar solo. It was just very dramatic and so we sort of knew that it was going to be a big single. We cut it once after the first tour and then Peter (Asher) said, "I think we can get a better take" so we recorded it again.
