‘Used To Be Bad’ is the ninth song on Paul McCartney’s tenth solo album Flaming Pie.

It was co-written by McCartney and Steve Miller, and originated from a jam session at McCartney’s Hog Hill Mill studio following the recording of ‘Young Boy’. See more…

I like blues but don’t do a lot of it, so when Steve Miller said that he wanted to get me singing ‘Texas blues’ it sounded like a good offer. I got on drums, he got on guitar, all live, and we had fun. Then Steve came up with some words, suggesting we use old blues lines like ‘I used to be bad but I don’t have to be bad no more’. I put bass on it, Steve did some solos, and we decided to sing alternate lines, singing at the same microphone. It was a jam, based on Steve’s riff and made up in the studio, and the vocal came in one take. Steve and I are donating our royalties on the track to LIPA.
