Then came the organ. It really needed to be there, but Johnny initially heard something different than the rest of us – but we wanted him to play that classic Hammond B3 organ. With a lot of coaxing, and some examples of “how it was done back in the day”, Johnny managed to ‘infuse’ some Motown soul into his fingers. He picked it up really fast, and even managed to get that Hammond B3 to ‘wind up’ from the bottom to the top, at the start of the last chorus. When I pressed ‘record’, and he nailed that move on the first try, we all pretty much fell out of our chairs! Great moment.
