EC is/was a chameleon…different styles for different bands throughout his career. he’s been a much-maligned figure amongst the general stones fan-base and it saddens me no end. he never did any harm to anyone.

Which I find extremely ironic considering that he was friends with Mick and Keith lol.

And that he completely changed the vocabulary of blues/rock guitar playing – without him very few of the others would sound the same. It’s like Tod said on the hangout the other way when we were discussing MT’s soloing style – his leads are coherent compositions in their own right and reflect the way jazz guys play and think more than they do the antecedents of rock guitar. Clapton and Mike Bloomfield started all that.
