OT: Eric Clapton Rockin' and Feelin' Good!!!
Posted by: Bellajane ()
Date: November 26, 2017 23:39

Given all of the sad and depressing news about musicians' ill- health and death in some cases, I was wondering how Eric Clapton was doing. I checked briefly online and he looked very frail in recent photos. He was in a wheelchair at the airport this spring. I gather he's suffering from peripheral neuropathy which is depressing. Wondering if he'll ever play guitar again? Has anyone heard anything?

EC was playing guitar as recently as September - he did a handful of shows in NY and LA.

I was almost afraid to open this thread. As noted, he just played a few shows in September...a little Googling goes a long way.

He's done about 13 concerts this year.
Also has an "Anthology" type film coming out soon.
Just watched the You Tube clip: he looks fine....and his playing likewise.
In fact, looks in a lot better shape than Keith. But of course he has taken care of himself better this last 30 or so years.

He sure has played a lot of shows.
Dare I say I hope he is retired and healthy/ happy.

Was just about to post this. Apparently "Clapton is God" graffiti is already appearing (again) all over London.

How is this a terrible topic? Just merely inquired about his health. All things being equal, considering some of the discussions and insensitive remarks on this forum, this topic is fairly benign. I could have posted his photo from LAX and stated Clapton's On Death's Door. I just asked a question that's allsmileys with beer.

Agree.

Topic could be made a more tasteful one, especially as, as it reads now, it is a rather alarming headline that gives reason to worry.

I am going - could it be Stones on July 7?

Then it would be the perfect weekend, Roger Waters, Stones and Eric.

Imagine Steve Winwood will join Eric on stage for songs like Mr. Fantasy and Can't Find my Way Home

Nothing wrong with this topic. Nothing wrong with your intentions either. It is just the title of the thread that scared people, including myself. I really thought there was something wrong with Eric Clapton.

You can easily change the title.

I'm more worried about Ronald David Wood's health to be honest. (After comparing photos.) Maybe he's in great condition but he doesn't look quite like that.

Why? I've heard several people say that, but I can't see it myself.

Here are some pretty recent pics - with some time between them - including one of a jogging (!) Ronnie during the Euro-tour this fall.




I hope I'm able to go for a run when I'm 70...

He's fit and looks horrible sometimes (but not always). Maybe it's because he's so thin.

I'll try it...didn't know this was an option. Thanks for your kind words. I certainly didn't mean to offend anyone and still rather surprised that I did! I was going to inquire about Mick Taylor's health. Glad I didn't. Can't find anything recent on the web and the last I knew he was living in The Netherlands with his girlfriend. That was a couple of years ago. Oh well!smiling smiley

He looks pretty good now in comparison to certain times in the past when his skin had a pasty grey and yellow tint to it.

I don't really get why people think Ronnie looks unhealthy. Yes, the gaunt, narrow face looks a little off-putting, but other than that, he looks great. His eyes are so bright and happy nowadays, which is nice to see.
