Wow. I hadn't heard about this. Just listened to a snippet of the song and it's lousy. (And to think I posted a Van Morrison tune on the "Feel Good" songs thread while my daughter was recovering from Covid. I actually had her struggle and the pandemic in mind when I posted the song - ugh. :()

Cool clips

Stairway would’ve been twice as interesting if Jeff Beck and Clapton were out there harmonizing with him right from the get-go. It shows how bloated Page’s ego is that he has those two at his disposal and doesn’t bring them out until the end. I also think Page kind of blew the solo on Layla. It even looked like Beck looks at him sideways for just a split second before saving the day.

I think both Page and Clapton had a big ego. Beck seemed more easy to work with.

The only way this thread could get worse, it's by changing its name to: What sucks about this artist: The Beatles Edition
By the way, just in case you think that I opened the Pink Floyd thread, I didn't, it had been there for ages, and I posted a reply to defend my 2nd or 3rd favourite band!

Ah hawuld yer whisht, as we say here in Ireland. It's all in fun. When you let slip that you were a Clapton fangirl, my destiny was clear... you'll note that I also made one for my own favourite band, so that there can be no accusations of bias.

I'm trying to pretend this thread doesn't exist but I come back to it every half-minute. I guess it's just too hard for me...


No coments.

Like Millhouse said, I fear to watch, yet I cannot look away! :D

I listen to Disraeli Gears dozens of times. It's one of the first albums I owned. I also like Derek & the Dominos and Blind Faith. They are worth checking out imho.

I don't care for the "Beano" album I think it's over-hyped. But I like other John Mayall albums -- so go figure. Talking about John Mayall, I think Peter Green and Mick Taylor are just as good or even better guitar players than EC. But most Boomers just rave about Beano ... but no. :rolleyes:

I don't think it's worth hating on E.C. cause he did contributed some good stuff with Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek & the Dominos, a one off performance with The Dirty Mac and song colab with The Beatles.

Yeah, c'mon from the beginning I thought it was fun, even if it had been about why The Beatles (my favourite band) suck I wouldn't be angry. The difference is that, as you said, I'm a Clapton fangirl (and a huge one), so I was just pretending that I was upset ( I would have done the same if you had opened a "What sucks about Robert Plant" thread).

Derek And The Dominos were great, just one album, but what a great quality!
Peter Green...ok, I like him, I listen to "Green's era" Fleetwood Mac, but I wouldn't say he was better than Clapton, although I think they're at the same level and comparable. And Mick Taylor...I mean, the guy from The Rolling Stones...You've probably already read what I think about them in the "What sucks about The Rolling Stones" thread...
While My Guitar Gently Weeps is such a good song! The Beatles + Eric Clapton, I almost cried with joy when I read about it.

Anyone who duets with Tina Turner should be strung up with their own guitar strings.
