I'd really like some opinions on this topic - what do you think about Eric's decision to start playing "Cocaine" in concert again? I've heard various comments but I want to know what YOU think!
"One of the first things Eric Clapton did when he began his recovery from drug and alcohol addiction was to quit performing the song, "Cocaine" in concert. "I thought that it might be giving the wrong message to people who were in the same boat as me," Clapton tells Associated Press. He says he has taken another look at the lyrics and believes it can be interpreted as an anti-drug song.
"Cocaine" was written by J.J. Cale, whose duet album with Clapton, The Road To Escondido will be released next month. Clapton is currently on the North American portion of a world tour. "
