    i was looking thru new issue of guitar magazine, and in the issue it had a tidbit about eddie, sending eric clapton a blues tribute to eric clapton.
    after recieving the tape, eric claptons, response was he didnt feel it was true blues. or blues....
    does anyone know anything about this, and was it eddie doing clapton songs are what, i found it , interesting.
    id sure enjoy hearing those tapes. lol
    i bet there cool as hell....
    and another thing, does eric clapton and eddie get a long. are does eric clapton. not interested in talking to a hard rockin guitarist like eddie who isnt a blues type player. even thou most of eddies playing is of blues notes, just done in a rock n roll version , rock and blues are the same to me except in the styles.
    i know in the vh3 album, a year to the day has some fuckin cool, blues sounding playing that rocks my world. and i dont even like the 3 album except that song.
    well any way. input of this would be cool if anyone knows anything. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    i think that tape was from sometime in the 80 s cause i have a special magazine of his interveiws and he talks about that back then...i think clapton has a hair up his ass and beleives he s the greatest guitarist, blues and otherwise. plus eddie said the first time he met him he got drunk cause he was nervous and made an ass out of himself so maybe thats why clapton has an attitude about him. clapton acts like an old delta bluesman now even though he s from friggin england and you know how bluesman have the attitude that you gotta be great or you get no respect. and although eddies an awesome blues based guitarist he s no delta bluesman with his hat and pimp suit on.

    This is the first I've heard of it, man.

    Clapton hasn't really done shit since Cream.
    I'll probably catch hell for saying that, but that's my take on it.

    He hasn't had balls in a long while. (It's probably why he's got so many grammys. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] )

    While someone like Jeff Beck (just picked him because of the age range), who experiments and couldn't give two shits if he were popular, Clapton's comfortable playing old fart blues - Just bluesy enough not to catch flak, but not nearly brave enough to make people stand up and take notice.

    If he didn't like Eddie's blues playing, well... It's probably because he forgot just what the blues sound like.

    Yeah,I think that bluesbreaker thingy was meant to be a tribute to Eric and his John Mayall stuff and I don't think Mr Clapton really got the intent behind it..
    The thing is,Eddie always talks about how he was influenced by Clapton an'all(and I suppose Eddie's playing these days reflects a more blues based approach)BUT..
    In '78 when Edward exploded on the scene with "ERUPTION", alot of people viewed his style as more classically influenced thus single handedly making players like Clapton,Page and Joe Perry sound a little dated..hence perhaps a little bit of resentment on their behalf...
    But y'know..it seems everybody hated Van Halen back then cos' they were just too god damn cool fer school!! [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]

    I have the original Star Fleet on vinyl. On the back the song "Blues Breaker", it says dedicated to E.C. (Eric Clapton).

    Dear Rick S,

    I saw that interview some years ago. It was very cool. Eddie mentioned how several months later after VH had taken the world by storm, they certainly knew who he was. I think that is when he became known as the "Kid from Pasadena". Anyway, it was a great article. Blackmore sounds like a real dick, with a substantial chip on his shoulder.

    I'll have to agree with DIF: I think Clapton is way, way, way overrated. I remember the article about Clapton being kind of a dick to Eddie, although Eddie freely reveals that Clapton had a big influence on him. And say what you want, but Clapton ain't no delta blues man, nor will he ever be.

    If Clapton was so great, he would have outsold Van Halen. In fact, he did not even outsell the Dave or Sammy era by themselves.

    Eddie is a much better writer then Clapton. I guess a #1 song for five weeks, three songs in the top 5, 6 #1 albums and a record 11 #1 AOR songs were not enough for Clapton to digest.

    Oh yeah. Eddie is more innovative and more influential the Eric too. What did Clapton innovate on the guitar with all those years before Eddie? Nothing! Hendrix introduced him to the "Wah." While Clapton was doing all his same "slow hand" stuff for 40 years, Eddie patented double hand tapping, artificial harmonics and harmonics, whammy bar dives and screams, volume knob tones, and fast solos. I guess thats why everyone in the industry recognizes CLAPTON'S "Brown Sound." Yeah right! The only thing he is known for is stealing George Harrison's wife, banging Sheryl Crow, and sleeping with Mick Jagger in 1968.

    Clapton is looking to buy a summer home on Marthas Vineyard, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger spent alot of time there last summer.

    Dave even spends time there as well.
