    I'm pretty sure he's been going deaf for decades.

    He's also been dying for decades as well. Every day, closer to death. And soon he will be gone.

    Well, given that I also started a Prince thread and a Bowie thread, I'm picking you won't have to wait much longer.

    i only blame you for prince, since it appears he went accidentally. but yeah any day now. perhaps if he lingered more often upon thoughts of his dead son?

    I remember that he and Roger Waters once organized a concert protesting the fox hunting ban in the UK. This... definitely tops that.

    Also, I remember hearing about this like a month ago. Why is it being reported again?

    A friend of mine dated Eric Clapton for about three months in 1983, I believe. She said he was dirty bugger; didn't wash; had bits in his beard; off his chops on coke most of the time; so she ended it.

    A friend of mine dated your friend and thought she was smelly.

    Why are you getting so personal about my friend? You don't know her.

    I'm sure you'd like to portray her as some cheap lay, but she is actually one of the nicest, kindest, people I know. She lives here in Cairns nowadays.

    If you're sure about that, your judgment is pretty shaky.
    I was making fun of your post, not of some woman I don't know and don't interact with.

    It was the 80s, wasn't everyone on coke?

    No. Everyone was not on coke. Not even in London where I lived at the time.

    My friend had tried it a few times; she liked a drink or three, but she was otherwise a pretty sober person. When you spend time around someone who can barely function without it (as was the case with Clapton at the time), then it sets a contrast between your behaviour and theirs. And his personal hygiene was actually the biggest issue, though this relates to the fact he was a total mess.

    Look, I have barely touched on what I know about this period; but those are personal stories. If you lived in London in the 80s, as she and I did, then you saw the blunt end of a lot of celebrity excess. But most of us were somewhat removed from that surreal world.

    Trying coke and being 'on' coke really are distinct things. And I made my original post because I know that Clapton is a truly terrible person. I loved his music for many years; now I just think he's a ****.

    It's like all the crap spoken about the 60s. Like as if everyone was on LSD or chilling on bongs; it's BS of the highest order. Most people never knew any of that stuff.

    If you lived through Thatcher's 80's in London, there was very good chance that you were struggling to pay the rent and feed your family. Drugs were not even a remote consideration for most people.
