Would you rather be on the bottom in a world of winners, or a winner in a world of losers ? I'd take the world of winners, one can always work their way to top :)

First heard after listening to The Grateful Dead coming down from acid. I felt so relieved after listening to the endless non ending phrasing and pointless music. Thought I landed in church on Sunday morning with pancakes and waffles! Still a favorite.

First heard this on the sound track album of Easy Rider. Been covered many times, but never can seem to turn it down when it comes on. Met a guy who said he was Luke. He had me convinced.

Does anyone know if this is true? I heard somewhere that although Eric Clapton was asked to be a guitarist for both the Stones and the Beatles he turned them down, but when he wanted to join " The Band" he was rejected.
