Skimming through the best and worst gtr solos and about to
post my own , EC’s Sleepy Time Time, it occurred to me how
he was never as good post Cream.
Was it the change of gear, new bandmates, drugs or me?
Not only Clapton but heaps of my ‘childhood’ faves lost it.
I don’t mean obvious train wrecks like Sly or Keef but people
who had everything going for them.
I guess one could add ageing, ego etc. to the above but the interesting
point to me is letting go of what was unshakeable faith in your rock gods.
How tribal and conservative youth can be while thinking what a rebel you are.
