Showtime Clapton Life in 12 Bars

Recommended Posts

Anyone seen this show on Showtime?  Watched it last night, and was honestly pretty disappointed.  A lot of stills, garbled old recordings.  Some interesting things I didn't know, but a positive outcome after all.  He was a wreck for a long time.....

Same impression for about the first half hour. It did not hold my attention but I was tired from a long weekend. I'll give it a full watch soon. Was hoping it gets better but doesn't sound like it.

About 10 minutes of new and cool interesting stuff, like Tom Dowd, Duane Alman, interspersed with a lot of nothing.

Agree.  It's too bad because Showtime normally does some very good original programming, but not this time.....Some crazy video of him snorting blow from the blade of a knife....

I understand now that his health is not good and he cannot play anymore.

I've read that his hands are the real problem, arthritis, ligament and tendon damage, etc.  Although I do believe he has a show scheduled for later this year in London.

Watched it last night...I had no idea he was that F...ed up....Seems to me he didn't have a solid foundation (family)...when growing up...really glad he came through it.

 

I did listen to Unplugged this morning

Did you see that mountain of cocaine? I thought it was the Winter Olympics for a second.

Pete Townsend saved his life, no doubt about that.
