You Stand By Me

Pete: "I wrote this a few minutes before appearing on my partner Rachel Fuller’s In The Attic Live webcast show from my studio in London. I had nothing new to play, and decide to write a song. This just came out. It is for her, and for Roger, for believing in me, and standing by me when I have been completely out of order. It could be for many of my family, friends and fans who have done the same. I have often been a very tricky man to live with."

Pete added in an interview with the Los Angeles City Beat, "What then actually happened is Roger spotted this stuff and fed back to me, ‘Hey, I love this!’ And I was taken by surprise. Really?"
