Eric Clapton


British musician of blues, rock and jazz.
Eric Clapton
All I am certain of right now is that I don't want to go anywhere, and that's not bad for someone who always used to run.
Clapton quotes
You never told me he was that fucking good.
Clapton
My driving philosophy about making music is that you can reduce it all down to one note if that note is played with the right kind of sincerity.




Clapton Eric quotes
Music will always find its way to us, with or without business, politics, religion, or any other bullshit attached. Music survives everything, and like God, it is always present. It needs no help, and suffers no hindrance.
Clapton Eric
Some people talk about me like a revolutionary. That's nonsense; all I did was copy B.B. King.
Eric Clapton quotes
In my lowest moments, the only reason I didn't commit suicide was that I knew I wouldn't be able to drink anymore if I was dead.
Eric Clapton
I had a Les Paul before Eric but I didn't have a Marshall. And when Eric got all of that together he was a delight to listen to. He really undertstood the blues.
Clapton Eric quotes
If it ain't Mississippi black music it ain't worth a damn.
Clapton
Do we have any foreigners in the audience tonight? If so, please put up your hands. Wogs I mean, I'm looking at you. Where are you? I'm sorry but some fucking wog...Arab grabbed my wife's bum, you know? Surely got to be said, yeah this is what all the fucking foreigners and wogs over here are like, just disgusting, that's just the truth, yeah. So where are you? Well wherever you all are, I think you should all just leave. Not just leave the hall, leave our country. You fucking (indecipherable). I don't want you here, in the room or in my country. Listen to me, man! I think we should vote for Enoch Powell. Enoch's our man. I think Enoch's right, I think we should send them all back. Stop Britain from becoming a black colony. Get the foreigners out. Get the wogs out. Get the coons out. Keep Britain white. I used to be into dope, now I'm into racism. It's much heavier, man. Fucking wogs, man. Fucking Saudis taking over London. Bastard wogs. Britain is becoming overcrowded and Enoch will stop it and send them all back. The black wogs and coons and Arabs and fucking Jamaicans and fucking (indecipherable) don't belong here, we don't want them here. This is England, this is a white country, we don't want any black wogs and coons living here. We need to make clear to them they are not welcome. England is for white people, man. We are a white country. I don't want fucking wogs living next to me with their standards. This is Great Britain, a white country, what is happening to us, for fuck's sake? We need to vote for Enoch Powell, he's a great man, speaking truth. Vote for Enoch, he's our man, he's on our side, he'll look after us. I want all of you here to vote for Enoch, support him, he's on our side. Enoch for Prime Minister! Throw the wogs out! Keep Britain white!
Clapton Eric
Clapton went into a rap about Enoch. His initial line was "Enoch's right I think we should send them back." I don't think he said "nigger" he said "wogs". He definitely said, "Keep Britain White". Nobody cheered, but after he played another song, he did the same again. It was extraordinary but he stood there being overtly offensive and racist. I was completely mystified as to why this man playing black music would behave this way.
Eric Clapton
I think Clapton is brilliant. He's the only one who moved me. The only one who made me want to play the guitar.




Eric Clapton quotes
Layla, you got me on my knees. Layla, I'm begging, darling please. Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.
Eric Clapton
To have ownership of something that powerful is something I'll never be able to get used to. It still knocks me out when I play it.
Clapton quotes
Given the choice between accomplishing something and just lying around, I'd rather lie around. No contest.
Clapton Eric
His fingers are directly wired to his soul.
Clapton Eric quotes
[Unplugged] was also the cheapest to produce and required the least amount of preparation and work. But if you want to know what it actually cost me, go to Ripley and visit the grave of my son.
Eric Clapton
Tell me why, must I fall in love with you?
Eric Clapton quotes
He is a great person, as well as a great musician. And this guy sings like he was born down below Mississippi!
Eric Clapton
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."
Clapton Eric
I'm an egomaniac with an inferiority complex.
