That was great. Grumpy old guy and apparently a less than prepared to deal with grumpy old  interviewer :D

I had no idea he was still alive.

Mostly because he doesn't matter anymore and he's bitter about it.

Then why was he such a prick in the Rolling Stone interview?

Perhaps his father recently passed away or he had a long term relationship end badly

He's like we are; old n' cranky, and he's a Celt just to make it harder...
Despite his humanity, after seeing him play recently, there's NO denying his talent with a kit.

To be fair, I never said he was a poor drummer. Watching the '05 Cream concert now. Very good. Jack Bruce rocks!

Thanks Cookie.  :thumbsup:


If they could find a suitable replacement for Grech, I'd love to see Blind Faith play again.
