Great message - boring song. A great guy.

I'd say the opposite - decent tune, misguided message.

Agreed.

He is a great musician, but not an all-around great guy.

I lost a lot of respect for the guy. I thought he was smart enough not to be misinformed by BS

I just watched the You Tube clip of EC song and it was okay and middle of the road music wise and performance wise including his guitar work . As far as the lyrics go I didn't hear anything questionable or offensive and I can't disagree with the songs premise as this thing has to stop and How I wish it was all over with as well but that's just not the reality .

He says it’s a bs. That’s offensive to me. It’s real. Thousands have died. He says he can’t feel his hands. But he talked about having neuropathy for years. Yeah it’s offensive cause it’s bs on his part.

I don't think Clapton's neuropathy being exasperated by his vaccine injections can be considered BS, My physiotherapist has a pre-existing heart condition and it was exasperated significantly by the vaccine. He still supports the vaccine, but he's really worried about getting a 3rd dose/booster. And what if that becomes mandatory here in British Columbia at some point? I feel for my physiotherapist. It's a tough position to be in.

Unless Clapton has broken down his lyrics in an interview I don't think anyone can make a literal translation that extends beyond conjecture. He may be referring to lock-downs and vaccine mandates as BS not the existence of the virus itself. Although, I haven't been following his interviews, so maybe he has literally

I support vaccine mandates, I've had both jabs. I think people with legitimate pre-existing health conditions, that can't safely take the vaccine, should have reason to be frustrated. Unfortunately a lot of those same people look for allies in the wrong places and end up associating with the fringe conspiracy theorists.

My take on the lyrics was they were to vague and probably done on purpose just for this type of specific . EC is no dummy . To me it came across as he was venting and probably frustrated by the whole situation . I just can't read into EC mind on a meaning beyond the lyrics . Fully vaxed (Pfizer )and ready to roll up my sleeve for the booster shot .

He’s made things pretty clear in interviews and recent songs. He’s an idiot

Never got the hype about Clapton. He wasn’t even god when it was being spray painted on walls. Peter Green was a far better blues player than Clapton.
But of a racist too...Ginger Baker was a better drummer than Clapton is guitar player.

So I guess you don’t play guitar or drums.

A little of both.. More guitar and for longer than drums. Always dicked around on drummers kits over the years and finally bought one 3/4 years ago.

I suppose music to me is feel, Ginger had a better feel for music through his instrument than Eric Clapton has. Peter Greens tone, feel, vibrato, bends, a delicate and aggressive style of playing all in one Song.

It’s not unusual to look at the components of a band. Clapton was at his biggest as a guitar god around the time of Cream, so I look at the trio, and he was one of them.

I thought Eric was commenting on government over reach. The imagery in the video supports that interpretation. And it has a nice melody.

Funny to see some reaction.............. first he is or was one of the greatest guitar players in the world and if the lyrics/opinion doesn't fit he is a dickhead confused smiley

Reminds me of the quote by Jagger and then opposite “Americans are funny people: first you shock them, then they put you in a museum.”

He can be one of greatest guitarists and still a putz.

I find it hard to believe Clapton thought Killing Floor was “too difficult” Hendrix player that track brilliantly no doubt, but I find it hard to believe Clapton’s reaction as told by those in the video.

Don't know what he thought about the difficulty of Killing Floor, but have heard the rest of the story told similarly many times.

Great clip. Love it. Jimi was a force of nature no doubt.

I looked it up, and there are 21 instances of worser in Shakespeare's works.

Wow! Playing the same versions of Layla and Tears in Heaven that he has played live for 30 years in a studio. The Rolling Stones should also have done a lockdown session playing Start Me Up and Satisfaction in a studio. How obvious that this film was just done to get some new money...

Yeah, this gives an Unplugged Pt.2 vibe doesn’t it?

According to the info on the Japanese website:

1. It was recorded somewhere in rural England, February 2021.
2. It will be released in BR/DVD, but the on-cinema version has a more than 15-mins extra, rehearsals, behind-the-scene shots, interviews etc. The set lists are also somewhat different between them.
3. The Japanese subtitles that appear on the clip mention “Golden Ring” and “Black Magic Woman”.

That’s about it.

Would have loved to see the Stones do a "lockdown session" similar to this...especially while Charlie was still alive.
Whether they were doing it just "to get some new money" or not, it would have been great...after all, everything they do is for the money...

Those two tracks are considered warhorses for Eric. I think we need to wait until it is released to see ifr it adds anything new to his body of work.
