"[David Bowie] was doing us so many favours at the time. I don't know what ["Sweet Jane"] was about. Lou [Reed] came in and he sang and I still didn't know what it was about. It didn't really have anything to do with us. It was America. We did it more or less out of gratitude to David for what he did to us."
