Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I was more of a Clapton (Eric Clapton) than a Hendrix (Jimi Hendrix) fan. I do like the blues: it's not something I can play, but I love the culture and the music. The whole history of blues going into jazz and then rock fascinates me. See more »

Trivia:

Often confused with John Williams, who is also a musician. See more »
