Back in 1967 and 68' I heard two songs that literally changed my view of rock. Keep in mind that I was just getting over the Beatles craze that actually got me playing an instrument in a band. Those two songs were Sunshine of Your Love and Crossroads by Eric Clapton and Cream. The common denominator was Eric Claptons guitar playing. Although I never aspired to play guitar (then) it was Eric's chops that knocked me out completely back then. There were many more during that time in my life (Jimi Hendrix for example) but still to this day, I still get a thrill hearing those songs and will never get tired of them.
