One "Angelo Mysterioso" is credited for acoustic guitar and vocals on this song. George Harrison used a near-identical pseudonym when he played on "Badge
," the tune he and Clapton wrote on Cream's 1969 album, Goodbye
. As a result, there was speculation that this was a track the former Beatle had left behind.
Clapton told Guitar World
the mystery collaborator wasn't Harrison. "No, it's not George," he said. "Well, the thing is, the person wishes to remain anonymous. So we came to that arrangement, and we both thought it was the best idea, for one reason or another. And I can't even tell you that much. I'm sworn to secrecy, and I hope he is, too. But I quite liked it."
