Itís funny how this song has become such a staple and fan favorite (I hate that termÖis there a better one?). I remember coming up with the main riff noodling around in my room on an acoustic. I started playing a little hokey number and it took shape as the main riff. I found it kinda funny - I was imagining a foot stompiní country hoedown with that riff on a banjo. Iím not sure when it occurred to me that it could be played on electric guitar and could potentially be a heavy-ish riff, but it did and here we are now. I have to admit I resented playing the song for a period of timeĖI donít think I ever really took it that...
Dustin Kensrue talks about Thrice's cover of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" on their website.
