''40,000 Headmen', that was one of his finest hours. Brilliant - a clever piece of writing. It's difficult to pick out one thing. I suppose the classic is 'Dear Mr Fantasy'. 'Paper Sun' was a beaut, 'Sometimes I Feel So Uninspired'; 'Eve' was a very good song. He wrote a couple of songs with George Harrison that were absolutely terrific.' JON LORD

'Had Jim been just a lyricist I don't think 'Dear Mr Fantasy' would have been born as it is. Jim would jot verses and lines and if I could sing something I would. That's how we created our songs... out of jams.' Steve Winwood
