I don't think anything will top his racist rant back in '76.
I adore that this exists. It provides hours of derision for me to pass the time in my own lockdown.
These lyrics sound like something a 13 year old might write on their first attempt to create a song. Holy crap balls this is bad.
Clapton should have fell out that window.
He’ll never need to worry about seeing that kid in heaven because he’s going to hell.
Yikes reaction to what was clearly a joke.
I did not know about this. It’s the worst
WARNING: extremely racist and offensive
yeah , I wonder if it was inspiration for Roger Waters' The Wall : when Pink becomes a fascist leader in that song singing racist slurs and "up against the wall!"
Holy **** - and he has the nerve to rip off blues musicians. I am utterly disgusted and no longer a fan.
It's like people are just discovering he's a bit of a dick?
TBF, those racist comments were not widely reported at the time. Those being the days before the internet, someone could be a terrible person, and you'd barely know unless a tabloid decided to put it out there. Even then, most people didn't believe what the tabloids put out, and if it was reported in say, a music journal, there was still no guarantee that it would come into general knowing.
I remained a fan of his well into the eighties, but getting to know people who knew him didn't paint a very positive picture. I was still oblivious to those comments though; I've no idea when they became general knowledge. Anyways, my music tastes veered away from that stuff entirely by the time I went to uni.
