It’s almost like Albert King was Slowhand’s personal manager...Clapton stole half his licks from Albert King, note for note. Well, if you’re gonna steal, steal from the best, right?
Albert taught SRV some stuff.
Most of the world doesn’t even know who he was.
Listen to ‘Born Under A Bad Sign’ - which Albert wrote and recorded before Cream recorded the hit on Disraeli Gears - and you’ll recognize an awful lot of licks.
