Walter Becker, age 67 - co-founder of Steeley Dan - never really a big fan but certainly had some very critically acclaimed records

I thought the same thing. Peg is a big fan, I can take them or leave them, but they were pretty renowned musicians.

Great band but somewhat a reminder of a not too good period in my life. I rehearsed in the basement with one of the best collection of musicians I ever worked with but we were all so fucked up on various substances that the basement is where we stayed...never played a gig. "Pretzel Logic" was one of the records that was new at the time and we focused heavily on taking material from it among other albums by various artists. Had the material down too...just too bad that the music tended to come in secondary to the the other interests we had. It all lasted about 8 months and just, well, fell apart. No surprise really. Love that album but bittersweet memories.

Interesting story, Cream.  I'll bet there are many who have a similar album or two, which they acknowledge as good or great, but can't bring themselves to enjoy it due to it reminding them of a painful part of their past.  Thanks for sharing.
