Could be something as simple as a faulty or sketchy memory. Some things he
is asked about in interviews occurred many, many years ago. And frankly I
imagine public/press put a lot more emphasis on the details of some issues than EC

Granted some events are more important and thus better to easily remember.
That said I suspect there might be some kind of mix up concerning WT as I would
think he would remember some of the specifics such as where and when that
song was written - but maybe not.

Also could be that both stories are partially accurate. Lyrics written at
home waiting on Pattie. Finished putting the actual music to the lyrics at
Ronnie Lane's pad? Just a thought...............
