Did you know that Eric Clapton was a tinkerer with guitar equipment, and at times experimented with customizing his guitar components to bring a certain sound from the instruments?

Did you know that Ric Grech was born in southern France, relocated with his family (no pun, his real biological family!) to midland Great Britain, and as a teenager was destined to become a classical musician?

And did you know that Ginger Baker was an avid long-distance cyclist in his younger years, developing his extraordinary lower body conditioning which allowed him to perform powerfully in his bass drum playing?

One more - Did you know that Blind Faith was going to perform at the Newport Pop Music Festival a day or two before opening at New York's Madison Square Garden? And the reason that gig was cancelled was that local officials felt that the planned security was not sufficient to control a throng of potentially violent youngsters that would most likely congregate at an outdoor festival?? So close, but that North American tour opener was not to happen, because of paranoid officialdom...........

More trivia coming, and we'll change some of these tidbits as other ideas come.......
