    Oh, no doubt about that ... like on Unplugged, some of the songs are copied NOTE FOR NOTE from Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, etc. but most people credit him for that... I agree with you on that. Kinda like Led Zeppelin ( I am a HUGE fan ) got whole lines and riffs from old bluesmen and made songs with them ,especially on the first two albums... have you ever listened to Muddy Waters' song "You Need Love"? Next time you get a chance... and yes, read the title again, it "inspired" the song you're thinking of... just listen to the guitar riff...
    Like somebody said, nobody lives in a vacuum... and if you create new from the old, they call it rock n roll... ;)

    -One of the best records of the 60's (Bluesbreakers).

    -Sparing us from anymore Cream by bailing on them (I find the 5-8 yrs of his career after that to be far more interesting than Cream - especially LIVE Cream).


    PEOPLE CAN LOVE A LOT OF HIS WORK AND STILL BE CRITICAL.

    Well, that's what you can expect when you post insinuating stuff and throwing mud at people, may it be at Clapton or whomever.

    I could have known by the title this thread was up to no good. But that post about Clapton's son...

    made me really sad.

    I'm very confused about this thread

    What does a seam have to do with his toy?? Are you talking about sutures or something ???

    And to the "person" that posted about Clapton's Son....well, never mind.....I'll just leave that one to Karma to fix

    He didn't start the Bluesbreakers . He joined John Mayall's Band as did Peter Green and Mick Taylor and many others after him. My earliest John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers album was recorded live in Dec 64 and has Roger Dean on guitar.

    Since 'Fresh Cream' pre-dated 'Are You Experienced' by five months, would it be fair to credit EC with introducing us to the concept of the 'power trio?'

    Ever heard of the term Flamebait? Your post is one, as far as I am concerned.

    And yes, you could expect that, because you know that Clapton is held in high regards, and you know that people are going to disagree vehemently with your insinuation that he cannot take credit for anything he has done.

    I would think playing wailing proto-classic-rock blues guitar on the Bluesbreakers album way back in 1965 (when everyone else was plinking through their Vox) is enough for anyone without the subsequent multi-decade career.
