Bob Seger remarks "My old friend Glenn Frey of the Eagles had an idea that our guitarist Drew Abbott should play along with the piano solo. He and I then went out and did the background vocals together. The line 'Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then' bothered me for the longest time, but everyone I knew loved it so I left it in. It has since appeared in several hits by other artists, so I guess it's OK."

 

TRIVIA:

Seger won the 1980 Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal Grammy award for this song.
