You’ve probably seen this quote flying around Twitter in the wake of the death of Prince. It’s a really nice sentiment, but is it true?

Answer? Nope:

More from Snopes:

An excerpt:

This purported response is one Clapton is extremely unlikely to have made (in anything but jest), as it follows exactly the narrative of a decades-old (false) urban legend in which either Jimi Hendrix or Clapton himself supposedly answered the same question, in equally surprising fashion, by saying that it should instead have been posed to Phil Keaggy:

Jimi Hendrix was on the Tonight Show one time in the late 60s. Johnny Carson turned and asked him how it felt to be the greatest guitarist ever. Hendrix quickly responded: “I don’t know. You’d have to ask Phil Keaggy.”

Now, will all of the verified tweeters who posted this please correct yourselves? Thanks!

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.
