Here's a one-question rock quiz. If you fail the quiz, seppuku for you!
All you have to do is name this British guitarist:
1. Though a child of the Sixties, he found fame much, much later.
2. Were it not for his willingness to sell his '59 Les Paul to Eric Clapton, "Fresh Cream" would have sounded very different. (And consequently, guitar-collectors today wouldn't be paying thousands of dollars for these babies.)
3. He once jammed with Hendrix in a studio in California (with Hendrix on bass!) He was so in awe of Jimi that he described himself as almost being reduced to a "sobbing heap".
4. He briefly played with one of the key British Invasion bands. In fact, at one point in the mid '70s, he was slated to join another key Brit Invasion band - the Rolling Stones.
5. His guitar chops are legendary, but NOT ONE of his hit songs features a guitar solo.
6. Wrigley chewing gum, anyone?
(Just so we are clear - I am NOT talking about Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page or Peter Green.)
