Re: What do you think of Eric Clapton?
The key to recognizing Clapton, beard or no, is that one side of his mouth always turns up. It's weirdly similar to Brian Wilson. He changed his appearance like 13 times between 1965 and 1971 or so, going from a generic Beatles look in 1964, to having a lame little mustache in 1965, to the "watermelon helmet" hair of early Cream, to the afro of later Cream, to the 1969 Blind Faith pics where he looks like Thom Yorke's dad or something, to the glam hair he had with Derek & The Dominoes, to looking like George Harrison. You can weirdly guess the year by what he was doing with his hair. https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/eric-clapton-poses-for-a-portrait-in-july-1969-outside-news-photo/140673150
Now he looks like an old math teacher.
The "My Sweet Lord" lawsuit was probably left out of that whole thing to look good, I bet a Led Zeppelin discography would leave out Willie Dixon suing them or all their other ripoffs.
