60 here, so my perspective....Many, like my wife and I love EC, in almost any form, from Blind Faith on. To us, his music is timeless. Layla album still sounds fresh to me...lol, the Clapton-Winwood show is incredible. We saw him live doing Journeyman, then Unplugged, and lastly, a few years ago, with a stripped down band. On stage, he seems to be a humble man. He has surely survived demons that have taken so many great artists way too soon. His life is such an open book that many of us would have a hard time walking out in public. On Larry King, asked about a higher power up there(King actually waved his hand up in the air), EC commented that he believed in God and got down on his knees every morning and thanked Him for his sobriety. I listen to music a lot and can't imagine a week without some Clapton, in any form.
