Can’t blame Clapton for this one, but the Jim Gordon story is wild.

The more I know about his self confessed racist past, the more I question MK’s decision to have him at Mandela…

Begs the question whether MK knew about Eric's past?

Yes of course he did, it was a big thing, it sparked the Rock Against Racism movement.

Oh Right, that does alter things somewhat.....

I had always understood it was a favour from EC for having MK as his 2nd guitarist on tour with him in '87.  Then that poses another question, doesn't it?!

There is a Spanish book about DS (the Carles Gamez or Silvia Grijalba one, can't remember which one) where some words from MK are quoted about this, don't know from which interview, but he (MK) said something like he invited Clapton to play with them at that concert because of something Clapton said in the past that was considered as racist, like a way to show that he (Clapton) wasn't a racist.

I never understood what MK mean with that, until I learnt what Clapton had said being totally high on a concert, many many many years later after I read that quote on the DS book.

Sorry for the sizes of the pictures, I don't know how to resize them.





You might get lucky, now and then

Sorry for the sizes of the pictures, I don't know how to resize them.

If you link images which are uploaded outside this site, from example you can create a link by uploading the images (as I always do) to postimages.org, then you can modify the size of the pictures.

Inside the post in AMIT, At the start of the line of the pics Change [img]http://into [img width=800] ot 700 or anything you want.
You can modify the original post also with this procedure.

I’m not going to bother people with this on Christmas Eve for Christ’s sake, people have families.

I did not ask you to do it on Christmas Eve but to pass it on to the right ones as you are not able to do it.
Again, I am not going to bother the other mods with something as trivial as this on Christmas eve.

The will have received an email when you reported your post.

Merry Christmas.
taken care of by the way. forgot to mention.
any Knopfler, Floyd or Dylan will do....
