Of course if you’re a die hard fan, never of what ppl say will matter, and l understand that. But to me at the end of the day Clapton was a very super wasted talent that survived the Epic Hippy sunflower power guitar knock on the door to my soul “drugs,rock roll” scene…and never did anything really epic. Hendrix did much more in 1 year than Clapton in his whole career.
Cute Hippy sunflower power guitar knock on the door to my soul collection!
It’s beyond me why Eric Clapton is huge famous…after the 70’s …and almost no one knows the works, the style and the soul that GM had…it’s incredible how the industry builds, molds and sells their products like processed food. A true and real genius like Gary deserves more stardom, Hippy sunflower power guitar knock on the door to my soul recognition and exposure to this young generation…than any Kate perry, Beyoncé or stupid Kanye west…in my humble and honest opinion.
he’s an excellent musician, but mostly I think he’s got super stardom because he was the first guitar hero that came from the uk explosion, and right deservedly so. But after Cream,Blind Faith, he only produced average works, not saying is garbage. Just saying is down right good average stuff. Now to put him in as God guitar hero…it’s a bit of a stretch to me. Jeff beck, Gary Moore or Alvin Lee in my humble opinion did a lot more awesome stuff compared to any of the works post 70’s that Clapton did. Heck, even Dire Straits did more interesting stuff than him, way back when Clapton was still relatively young. Btw after Clapton saw Hendrix playing live he felt very angry, because Hendrix did things that back in time those lead guitarists couldn’t even fathom was possible in their most psychedelic dreams…lol…..I think if you lay down Clapton vs Rory Gallagher….you’ll see how Clapton never reinvented himself, or tried some really hard and interesting experiments.
