Dave Stewart's plan to record his latest album at sea hit a stumbling block when members of his band were struck down with sickness onboard a luxury yacht.

The British musician borrowed a huge boat from a friend and turned it into a floating recording studio so he could lay down tracks for his new album, Lucky Numbers, while cruising around the South Pacific.

But some of the session musicians fell ill, so Stewart encouraged them to get drunk in a bid to counteract the condition.

He tells Britain's Sunday Telegraph, "It was weird for the pedal steel player because they play sideways. For the first three days, he was seasick. We were all saying, 'Look, the best thing is to have a vodka on ice to counterbalance it’.

"By the fourth day, we were all smashed on vodka and nobody was seasick any more.”
