Harvey, some of Eric's bandmates such as Carl Radle were from Tulsa and he visited back in the day.
A friend of mine knew these guys and has an Eric Clapton story. He was a guitar teacher for many years. He told Eric how kids wanted to learn to play like Jimi but he couldn't teach them the songs. He finally theorized that Hendrix's guitar was never in tune so it'd be hard to teach that. Eric told the guy that he picked up Jimi's guitar once and it was totally out of tune. Jimi came in and grabbed it from Eric and it sounded great when Jimi played it.
Did you ever work with Carl Radle?
