Eric Clapton celebrated his 76th birthday today and I’m guessing he didn’t wear a mask.
I can overlook a lot of shit from my musical heroes, I’m looking at you drunken racist immigration rants back in the… whenever that was, but the anti mask shit you pulled recently… just fuck you, bro.
I still want to hear him play live again. Just one more time. That’s despite the anti mask shit. I mean really… fuck you, bro.
So instead of birthday wishes here’s a pic from 1966 with the legendary Marshall combo amp behind him, and the even more legendary, dare I say almost mythical, 1960 Les Paul Standard in front of him.
Assuming the Instagram link works, of course…
(The guy next to him is John McVie who about two years later became the Mac in Fleetwood Mac)
