This track features the «sixth» member of the Rolling Stones, the late Ian ‘Stu’ Stewart, and it borrows from Richie Valens «Ooh My Head,» which in turn was based on Little Richard’s «Ooh My Soul.» There is a credit on the track for Mrs. Valens, Richie’s mother, as the band heard his mother never got any royalties from Richie’s songs. The result was that the band was sued! A working title dreamt up by Plant was «Sloppy Drunk.»
The song is named for the participation of the Rolling Stones resident boogie-woogie pianist Ian Stewart, who was for a time a member of the Rolling Stones, but was deemed ‘too normal’ by then-manager Andrew Loog Oldham and subsequently became the band’s roadie and long-term associate until his death in 1985 while the Stones were working on the «Dirty Work» album. The snippet of honky tonk piano at the end of side two of that album is their triubte to him.
