DARLENE LOVE RECORDS MICHAEL DES BARRES SONG FOR DEBUT SOLO ALBUM

Little Steven Van Zandt has been in Los Angeles mixing Darlene Love‘s debut solo album, which he produced. Darlene is his favorite singer of all time. He asked me to come visit him in the studio. When I arrived, he sat me down at the mixing board and said, “listen to this one.” Suddenly, I realized he had produced for Darlene a song I cowrote with Paul Ill, called “Painkiller.” My mind was blown. You might know the song from my last album “Carnaby Street.” To hear it reinterpreted by arguably the greatest female singer in R&B/soul was truly one of the happiest and proudest moments of my life, and it was captured in this photograph.

PS — all of this happened on Friday the 13th…
