"..When you were 15 you jammed with John Mayall at the Polytechnic?

Well, Eric Clapton was with him, and he didn’t show up for the gig. I was there with my friends to watch the show.
We watched the first set, which was about an hour long, and Eric just wasn’t there.
I’d kind of gone along to see Eric Clapton and John Mayall, you know, and Eric Clapton wasn’t there.
With a lot of prompting from my friends, I got up on the stage and played the second set.....

Did Mayall have a guitar for you?

Well, Eric’s guitar was there, but Eric wasn’t, you see. So I just played his guitar. It was a Les Paul –
I think it was probably a 1958 Les Paul. He was playing it through a small Marshall combo amp...."

I'm sure the list of people who have played the Beano is longer than my leg. It's just a matter of verifying the list. :thumb:

People didn't give too much of a shit about old guitars until WELL after the fact.

mmhhh.....in '64 I was playing the guitar for just about 2 years - not good enough for the Bluesbreakers.
But in '67 I played in the opening act for Jimi Hendrix in Berlin...:thumb:
