Clapton deserves the blame for making the Blues boring.


To this day I cant wrap my head around Clapton. People always praise his guitar work but it sounds very basic to me. Anyone out there that can help me with this?

Clapton as guitarist reached his peak with Mayall and Cream and has not developed since then. He's playing the same old licks for decades now.
Virtous, but static, cliched, boring. Jack Bruce once called him a cold fish.

Here's that racist rant I was talking about put through a Microsoft Sam computer reader. That self-same rant was the catalyst for Roger Huddle founding Rock Against Racism. Clapton's been called out on it a few times and still says he's an ardent Enoch supporter.

I've had to grit my teeth not to get involved in any "they aren't crap" - "yes they are" type arguments, particularly as many of the bands mentioned are ones that I like.



I would tend to agree, and it's clear that the shit-list wasn't really what the thread as about anyway. Maybe it's that sense of catharsis that leads to these purges.


I can see both sides of this and they're both valid. More importantly, what I would say is I'd draw a line when it comes to HH regulars feeling uncomfortable with a thread. That's not what we're about. Call me idealistic, but I've come to realise that there's a genuine community on HH and I appreciate that. I suspect we all do.

First couple of Tom Waits albums get me quite cross. Insincere and maudlin of course but worse they are nakedly manipulative. Emotional porn.

Oh yeah, I forgot Jimmy Buffet's Margaretaville. Arrrgh! Not that I mind the drink on occasion, just that I really don't like songs about being a drunken loser. That redneck accent was bad enough anyways!

I agree, Blues Traveler sucks. I hate that ridiculous harmonica also
