 Quotes


  • Given the choice between accomplishing something and just lying around, I'd rather lie around. No contest.

  • I am, and always will be, a blues guitarist.

  • My dedication to my music has driven everyone away. I've had girlfriends, but I always end up on my own. I don't particularly like it, but I don't see a way 'round it.

  • We didn't really have a band with Cream. We rarely played as an ensemble; we were three virtuosos, all of us soloing all the time.
