A matter of taste but it is undeniable that Phil Collins (the producer on much of that dross) should be taken out and slowly shot!


He is an evil man and deserves to have his tongue ripped out and buried on a beach

Absolutely. Love that album, different but refreshingly so.

Clapton like Hendrix emerged at a time when now legendary guitar slingers were popping out of the woodwork left right and centre however unlike all the rest Clapton for me has a unique talent. He's the only one of the bunch who can improvise a solo of any length which sounds like it was worked out beforehand. It will start slowly and build to crescendo at intervals much along the lines of classical composition and all be done within the framework of simple pentatonic blues scales, be lyrical and without sounding repetitive. Now that's a fucking gift :clap:

But yes he's also put out some unspeakable dross over the years.

Beano, 461 and Unplugged. :thumbup:

He did a lot of muzak but there's moments, like the memorial concert for SRV, when it's very obvious that Clapton has turned up. And that's a wonderful thing.

Clapton needed to die when Duane Allman did. Not so good for him personally, but that legacy…

In a few short years you get Bluesbreakers, Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & the Dominos… in isolation that’s a better discography than Hendrix. Not cooler, but better. You could stack it against anyone.

And had he died, that 'cool' status would be there and he'd be on T-shirts at K-Mart in 2018.

But he lived. So there’s a decade of laying back and nodding out, then a decade of pushing up the sleeves on his Armani jacket (or was it Versace? Naomi darling, do tell!) and sipping champagne through a straw, then Unplugged and into two decades of stoic blues purism balanced with an audience wanting a nostalgia act.

I bought his autobiography years ago when it came out. Really should get around to reading it.
