Okay, looking back. I just watched some old Clapton stuff. I like the flashy stuff as much as any one but, Clapton is a remarkable guitar player. I've always been a distant fan but this stuff is awesome. Anyone who thinks he is over-rated needs to go back and listen. I disagree that he is overrated. I think he's rated appropriately. Fine, tasteful guitar player. I got my first guitar Christmas of '65. I can play anything Clapton has played. But I can't come up with the stuff he's come up with. And neither can anyone else. If you can...do so.
