Cream, arguably the first supergroup, and so super they were named after the wonderful dairy product that we all love to pour on our puddings. If you think I've got that wrong, you could be right, but then memory can play tricks on us.
A relatively short entry, thus: At secondary school, I say to my friend Tony McCarthy (where are you now, Mac?) "I've got Disraeli Gears," to which he replies: "No, you wanker, they're called dérailleur gears." I was talking about the album by Cream, he was talking about the fancy gear system that we all aspired to have on our pushbikes. A simple misunderstanding, but somehow it has lodged in my memory. Why? I really couldn't say.
Here are a couple of illustrations to avoid such confusion in the future.
Also-rans: Eric Clapton, who was part of Cream. I loved, and still do, Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek and the Dominoes featuring Eric Clapton and long aspired to play the guitar just like him. But the nearest I've ever come to owning a guitar was entering a competition to win a Fender Stratocaster. I've never had a guitar, never had a lesson, don't even do very convincing air guitar, but I'd still like to play like Eric.
