In a new (scratch that—it’s from 2016 but shared on social media … still going to write about it) Guitar World Q&A, Todd Rundgren discusses the notorious psychedelically adorned SG nicknamed “The Fool,” which had belonged to Eric Clapton. Did you know he didn’t obtain it directly from Clapton?

(I)t went through a number of hands before I got it. I think he gave it to George Harrison, and I’d heard that Paul Kossoff from Free owned it, too. I got it from Jackie Lomax, who was signed to Apple.

Does he still use it? Well … no:

I played it for decades, and I owned it until the mid-Nineties. I owed the IRS a lot of money, so I auctioned it off.
