I think it was when he wrote "Wonderful tonight", personally. I've never been a fan of maudlin sentiment from damp-trousered emotionally-parasitic drunks.

Perhaps you think it was another moment. Charitable souls might claim he didn't become a lost soul until releasing "Tears in heaven", for example.

"Bad Love" in the 80s. He's never really recovered from that.

It was about the same time as he started doing those wanky residencies at the Royal Albert Hall too. And Phil Collins was his drummer.

I remember hoping "Wonderful Tonight" was an aberation. And yes, didn't really give up on him until "Tears in Heaven"

I will always adore some of his stuff and him for touring with Muddy Waters. Clapton sucked donkey toes that tour (he collapsed and went into rehab a couple of weeks after I saw him) but Muddy was the MAN. OOOOOOOh I still get chills.

He had a slight comeback with his playing on Pros and cons of Hitchhiking by Roger Waters. But apart from that, shit

None of you hear "Me and Mr. Johnson?" Good stuff, boys. Worth a listen. Mr. Clapton's demise has been greatly exaggerated.

Gentlemen seems a bit of a stretch, no?
