He certainly didn't have anything nice to say about Paul & Ringo, or MJ for that matter!
Then there's the Marlon Brando stuff; eek!

I remember way back in like 06/07 when the hot topic was the royalty increase, and BillG did explain the impacts to RP then.  Just hope those F#$%ers in DC don't screw with a good thing more than they have.  Long Live RP!!

10!

One of the reason RP kicks ass is that BillG plays the popular classic rock tunes without apologies (and I'm sure to the chagrin of many) - and intermixed with new music and other old music that didn't get the airplay like this Cream classic did/does.  And as I look back on youth (80s and early 90s) I have to say Cream was the band that really got me hooked on both great musicians (Eric, Ginger and Jack ROCKED) and the psychedelic culture in general.  Call them my "Gateway Band" ... and then the floodgates opened as I heard the great albums from Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, etc., etc., etc.  So, to that power trio from England, I say THANK YOU!  And to BillG I say LONG LIVE RP!!

Came to this tune via a best of lp. Regardless. Did math homework to this tune. Cream a fave. Became a lifer. Numerically illiterate to this day all the same. Distractions. Sacrifices we make to feel happy.

The song merits a rating of "7" or "8", but the album cover merits a "10."

My favorite Cream song is Eric's live version of "Crossroads". It consistantly tops polls as the best live guitar solo ever. That's saying a Hell of a lot, considering all the other "guitar gods" who have come and gone in the intervening 40+ years.

Clapton is God! {#Cool}

Anyone ever heard Lawdy Mama?
They'd had this kicking around; it's derived from Clapton's encyclopaedic knowledge of blues. But then Jack hooked up with lyricist Pete Brown and out of that came niftier lyrics. Interesting to hear Eric on vocals, given how shy he was about singing back then.
