Clapton Quote About a Quote on Creativity

I’m not a huge fan of the online version of Esquire magazine. However, I saw an item about Eric Clapton and just had to click through.

It was a quick little read. Not sure it was all that insightful but I did like his comment on a quote he thinks might have been from Quincy Jones:

I don’t put something on tape until I’ve played around with it for a couple of weeks. I heard someone else say this — it may have been Quincy Jones. That he gets an idea, but he doesn’t really act on it unless it keeps coming back and starts to annoy him.
