For all you Clapton Lover's and Hater's, here is just one example of why he is so good. Please give it a listen with an open mind and then tell me it wasn't worth your while.
This song also happens to be off my favorite solo Clapton album, recorded soon after quitting his on again and off again romance with heroin. He was a great guitarist, songwriter and vocalist even during his addiction.
For the Haters, rather than rant on with how much you hate him, it might be more helpful to give examples of why you hate him. For you Lovers, give us examples of why you love him.
He is famous because people enjoy his musical style and revered in the music industry for his actual talents. Give me quotes of other famous musical artists who do not look up to him and his success.
Thanks for reading my rant.
