RIP Neil and Chris
 
2021-07-24 1:52:19 PM  
Weird how Neil and Chris both died the same way.

Kind of surprised that Chuck D and Tom Morello would be involved in a Clapton tribute, but it is a cool cover.

I dig Rush, but that beat behind the intro...yikes. Neil did not have the funk.

That was the first time in my life watching Neil Peart and thinking "I could do better." And I'm not even a drummer.

They're definitely playing Cream's arrangement though. The only difference is that Peart and Hawkins pulled back the drums to a very simple beat because there was so much else going on.

Fair.. FWIW There is also a Clapton album of pretty faithful Johnson covers that is really good, tho easier to listen to in the before times.

My wife gets on my case about my not liking to listen to stuff by Michael Jackson or Cat Stevens etc but it is hard for me to get the issues out of my head and enjoy the music.  Bummed that Clapton is now amongst those.

You're old!
No, you're old!

No I'm telling your Mommy!
I have this album you see, wax pressed.

I have it signed by Dave Walker.
I'm mommy's favorite.

tl;dr - he publicly advocated for the death of a prominent critic of Islam.

There was an incident involving lipstick and a countertop. Decency prohibits me from elaborating.

Why Cat Stevens?


Because over 30 years ago, Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam said that the fatwa on Salman Rushdie was technically correct, and people have hated him ever since.  Kind of like Jane Fonda and the Vietnam War.

To paraphrase Werner Herzog ;  Because Caravaggio was a murderer, I can't enjoy looking at his paintings?

Clapton was drunk (for about 20 years) and has since apologized.
Still waiting for Chuck  to admit he liked eating poop and peeing on women so I can get out my copy of Chuck Berry Live.

why would Rush and Run DMC collaborate on a Bone Thugs N Harmony cover?
 
2021-07-24 8:27:49 PM  
Spectacular moment, musically. But I could have done without the rappers. They didn't add much.

They only needed Neil on drums, but I guess Dave and Taylor came as a package deal.

My dad was a huge Clapton fan until he saw him in concert.  He said Clapton couldn't play one song, he was nodding off on stage.  That was when people were still writing "Clapton is god" on shiat, and well before anyone knew Clapton was a nazi.

whether the man is worthy of respect or not, his music and musicianship is.

once a song has been provided for public consumption, its meaning and the emotion carried with it no longer only belong to the sing/writer/composer/etc.  it also belongs to the listeners.

that's why it's "art"

saw him in early 2000s and he put on a solid show.  lots and lots of blues, not so much for the rock'n'roll

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. So many incredible bands have been dissed by them. Bands like:

Jethro Tull
The B-52's
Emerson Lake and Palmer
Eurythmics
King Crimson
Tool

and the list goes on. Meanwhile, they vote in the likes of one hit wonder Richie Valens.
