Jack Bruce And His Lifetime

Robert Greenfield, Rolling Stone, 7 January 1971

LONDON – It's the universal riff. When some kid in Laguna Beach finally stops driving all the neighbors crazy with it, a kid sitting by the fountain in Central Park stoned on downs starts to play it and when he gets tired there's a guy in Kathmandu who plugs in his Fender and turns it up...the first thing you learn to play on a guitar, the bass line from 'Sunshine of Your Love'.

Total word count of piece: 1042
