Clapton rocked the Cee apostrophe D on Top Gear.

Maybe he will stop touring in order to give racist speeches at white pride rallies.  I'm sure he's been dying to do more of that.

In before the "Clapton is overrated" crowd shows up.

"I used to be into dope, now I'm into racism. It's much heavier, man. farking wogs, man. farking 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 farking Jamaicans and farking (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 farking wogs living next to me with their standards. This is Great Britain, a white country, what is happening to us, for fark'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!"

Yeah, I've never heard this about him.  I always thought he idolized the american blues legends.
 
2013-02-28 10:25:47 AM
Also Clapton has been on record as saying: "Adolf Hitler was the first rockstar"
 
2013-02-28 10:28:32 AM
You would think he wouldn't be racist after his heavy blues influence and after covering Bob farking Marley, but he's just a closed minded jack ass.

Yeah, I've never heard this about him.  I always thought he idolized the american blues legends.


When he was heavy into alcoholism, somebody of a different race tried picking up his at-the-time girlfriend backstage, so during his concert he made some dumb remarks. Then everyone decided to take an alcoholic's words at face value because he was famous, and clearly thinking correctly. Because alcohol is a truth serum or some shiat.

Just because he was drunk/drinking at the time doesn't mean he doesn't believe what he said.  The man went on and on about it.  He picked out many different races in that tirade. He holds white supremacist beliefs, or is a segregationist at the very least.
 
2013-02-28 10:38:36 AM
Further more... "Clapton has never denied making these statements and has refused to apologize for his remarks or distance himself from them, although he denies that his views are racist and states that he is merely an opponent of mass immigration."

But he's not a racist.... nope.  Not at all.
 
2013-02-28 10:42:45 AM
I'd pay 50 bucks to watch Clapton tune a guitar.
 
2013-02-28 10:46:34 AM
You know who else is rascist? Your grandparents, but you still love them right?

/he's a pretty shiatty rascist, what with the effusively praising and giving credit to so many of the black blues musicians who influenced him
//and that tribute he did for Robert Johnson
///and that album he recorded with BB King

He said some pretty vile stuff, but he has a black friend so it's all good!

There's no doubt the man can play guitar, but he obviously harbors some nasty ideas and is not a decent human being.
 
2013-02-28 10:53:58 AM
Yeah kinda hard to be racist when you are friends with BB King and Buddy Guy. Worship Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, Leadbelly, Albert King, Freddy King. Keep hiring  black bass players, having Gary Clark Jr as your opening act..ect ect
 
2013-02-28 10:56:14 AM
I saw him live. The opening act from Robert Randolph was wayyyy more fun.

It may be "kinda hard" but dammit he sure did find a way.  I guess that's a pretty tough feat to achieve but kudos to him on his ridiculous accomplishment.

vudukungfu: Great, so now he will be able to spend more time with his kid.


It reminds of this song by a band called Anal C*nt called "Your Kid Committed Suicide Because you Suck"

"Sometimes I wish you didn't die
Because I hate that song 'Tears in Heaven'
I was glad you died until he wrote that song"

A little snippet of the song ^

Quoted in Rebel Rock by J. Street. First Edition (1986). Oxford: Basil Blackwell. pp. 74-75. Street's sources are editions of the New Musical Express, Melody Maker and the Guardian and Times newspapers from the time.

Also it was one of the major reasons for the founding of the Rock Against Racism concert.

It's not necessarily racist to not be keen about having your country overrun by third world refugees, If that's his complaint.

the term "wog" and "coon" aren't exactly nice terms to use to convey that point.

anyone who listens to AC knows they are a ridiculous band. That being said, I am not trolling when it comes to Clapton's racists views.  That is a matter of fact.  I'm sorry I took your hero down or notch or two.  But please go on and defend the indefensible some more.

Of course he's a racist.  I mean seriously, he was in a band called Cream.  Cream!  That stuff is used to lighten things that are black.  Such as coffee.  And pecan pie.  How racist can you get?  etc etc.

after doing a little research on EC, i can honestly say that i'm fairly disgusted at his views on immigration. i mean as recently as 2007, he was still lauding enoch powell as "brave" and "not racist."

He doesn't approve of "... inviting people in as cheap labour and then putting them in ghettos." Now that is truly despicable.

You should scroll down to that last paragraph in the controversy section of his wiki page you've been quoting, FarkedOver. It might add context to his drunken slurs and hurt your "He's a mean racist but good at guitar" shtick.

i had no idea. i vaguely remember the rock against racism thing when i was a kid, but i chalked it up to his alcoholism. but the fact that he still thinks powell is anything but a racist piece of filth is pretty disturbing.

I've read it all.  I've read that he hasn't apologized or backed off the statements he has made previously. You know what he says he did learn from all of this "To keep my opinions to myself."  He's a real standup guy.  I'm glad he's since sanitized his message to sound like a conservative rather than a raging member of the National Front.

That said, I'm not really a fan. Not a detractor either. Meh.

I have no idea what you're getting at now.  I haven't said anything that is a "troll", I haven't said one thing that isn't true.  I thought this was all pretty much common knowledge.  I'm glad I could bring his retarded views to light for a lot of you who hadn't heard it before.
