He's past his best but I'm sure he can still put on a great show even with just an acoustic.

I attended two of the 2015 RAH run and he was still able to entertain.
Just that when soloing he wasn't that high he used to be until the 2010 area.

These are probably my goodbye attending Eric performing live.
I don't want to witness an over diminished Clapton and the 2015 shows sounded the right time for me to get off.

Fan of Dire Straits since 1984

I saw him at the RAh last year and was as good as usual.
You might get lucky, now and then

That joke about the home at the end was just hillarious!

But I just realised that I also hate Eric Clapton. I hate him. I hate him for his talent, I hate him for the kind of relaxed life he has. For what he can do, for the people he does it with, for the places he does it in. I basicaly hate everything about him, including his nose hair. There, I said it.

These 3 minutes with "catch the blues" just some it all up. They're really having a blast doing it. That it's all happening in probably the best studio the world has ever seen is just an extra thrill. And the interview, I just love (I mean hate) how relaxed and open they are and I could listen to these guys all night. Talking music or shepherd's pie probably.

I know he's been through a lot but if I end up like that when I'm 70, oh man! I'll skip the arthritis and getting deaf part though.
Hehe

I don't think you should you hate anyone, eric has had has past but cleaned up his act.
 ive seen him live 10 times , was very good I thought until 2013 and was disappointed but year but thought 2015 at the albert hall on the 21st may thought was good again, my favourites are always covers of little queen of spades, hoochie coochie man  and key to the highway and drifin, but did like sheriff intro 2015 (which a song I don't like) had tickets for hyde park this year but couldn't make it , he has slowed down but still think its good for 73 which is mad really ,
ok he doesn't write his own stuff but he still plays great , trailing a lot of local venues in Plymouth the older players ( who cover the same songs cant play them as well)

i do love knopfler 100% more , but remeber knopfler writes his own stuff and has a totally different style , so you cant compare them

Yeah thats right, am so sick of this guy being heralded this and that....it really pisses me off....hes nothing more than a decent blues guitarist.....I especially hate the way people compare him to knopfler as if he is in the same league......Knopfler is the tyranasaurus Rex of the dinosaurs and eric clapton is a\ tiny little amoeba!!!!!!!!!!! His songs are shit, his lyrics of little substance and his guitar solos just bore me to death!!!!

Whats more i hate the fact that the songs that he plays are not always his own and he appears to get credit for this..

Did i mention that i hate his beard also and his voice is just well to quote Alan Partridge like that of " a small boy"

I know that many other people hate him too so lets hear ya!!!!!

From a Knopfler/good musicianship diehard!!!

Love to you all and lets hope we hear the new single soon!!!!!

Such a bad comment and topic. I love Eric Clapton and also J.J. Cale. MK is my homebase ofcourse, but hating other artists who make proper music is so acting like an asshole.
[edit] I just saw it is an old topic of 2009. Why people are upping these topics? Is their no moderation on this forum? Can sombody moderate these topics? I can't be angry about something said such a long time ago.
