Mary Jane

"'Mary Jane' was about my love affair with pot. I wrote the song on Fender bass. Peter Tosh was much on my mind. Once I got in the studio, I added an unfinished rock piece as an intro. Then I added flutes and, toward the end, broke it down to reggae. That rhythm guitar ain't nothing but a James Brown thang." - Rick James
