SPEAKING IN HUGELY general terms there’s two types of EC fans: those that say - “Clapton is a legendary blues-rock guitarist, the Beano album, Cream and all that;” and the other that goes, “I love Tears In Heaven and Wonderful Tonight and go to all the Albert Hall concerts.” After the years of childhood hurt and rejection that we heard in his early playing, I for one could never have imagined this softer side prevailing as it did. But Eric has never stood still - he’s said many times that the restless soul in him had to move on. In Cream the melodic side was surfacing on studio tracks like We’re Going Wrong, with the fluent improviser let loose in live shows on Crossroads, Spoonful, etc. Blind Faith saw a country-rock side…

food for thought

It’s been months now and I’m sure many of you are struggling in this lockdown. It’s a pretty scary time for many working musicians with all gigs and tours cancelled and no end in sight. One thing that you can do to help them and to help yourself is to get yourself an online lesson with one of the many amazing players and teachers who are doing them as replacements for gigs. I’ve been filming a new series for my website called Lockdown Lessons where I’ve approached a bunch of friends that are doing online teaching sessions and recording them, and I’m finding it really enjoyable on loads of levels.
