I assume that we're not counting the Jack Bruce Cream songs, since they involed an actual singer(Jack Bruce) and songwriters(Bruce and Pete Brown).

And he also had help from a schizophrenic with "Layla".

I bet you love Richard Thompson. He's the indie rock version of Eric Clapton.

Burdon sang at Bo Diddley's funeral here in Gainesville a few months. He's still got the pipes.
