    I was talking with Nate about quoting and stuff like that and I was reminded of these two.

    While not 100% the same...you can clearly hear where the inspiration for the solo...and pretty much the whole track...came from.

    That's James Burton with Ricky.



    And Dave's solo on this:



    Sometimes its subconscious...sometimes it's fully intended to point back to something.

    FWIW...I love both of these tracks. But the Ricky track kinda wins. I mean c'mon. James Burton. Written by the Burnette Bros. That's Rock'n'Roll royalty. :D

    You know, that whole "Blue Moon Solo" theory, you'd like to say it was co-incidental, but the chronology fits so well,
    perhaps you can only argue that maybe it was an unintentional or subconscious plagiarism, on EC's behalf. I'm guessing that maybe I'm not the only one who hadn't noticed the "Blue Moon" similarities in that solo, till you just pointed them out. All musicians have their roots, music they grew up with, I wasn't very popular with a younger family member, when I mentioned Blind Guardian had a lot of likenesses to Deep Purple.

    Low and behold, a while later, BG's guitarist mentioned, in an interview, that they were big fans of DP, as kids.

    Fezz often posts stuff I've been listening to.

    Heard this one on Sirius just the other day, and it sent me down an Ozzy and Harriet rabbit hole.

    Listen to Blue Moon and pay attention to the melody. Then listen to Clapton’s solo on Sunshine of Your Love. Not the riff but the opening the melody of the solo.

    If you sing The Police song Every Breath You Take from ‘oh can’t you see, you belong to me’ to ‘with every step you take’ you can go seamlessly into ‘whoa whoa yay yay, love you more than I can say’

    Oh man, you’re speaking to me with the Ricky/Burton stuff. Definitely part of my musicology.

    I'm talking about the time honored tradition of quoting and paying tribute if you will. It's a nod...not a lift.

    Clapton was thinking Blue Moon as a nod to the music that came before him. Not a lift. A nod. Like Eddie quoting Third Stone. A nod.

    I love all those records. I met Ricky once at the Sunset Grill next to Guitar Center on Sunset. Nice just like you'd expect him to be. Sat on the stool next to me and ordered a cheese burger. :D

    I wrote a Christmas song where the piano player responds to a line about Charlie Brown with the left hand riff from “Linus & Lucy.” It’s a neat quote that always makes people smile.
