But on the more improve tunes like Dreams & Liz Reed I thought he took a definite back seat to Derek.


Listening again lately it sounded to these ears like Eric wasn't familiar with the song, like he failed to understand what the solo was intended to project....It's not about speed or technique, or a "wow" moment, "Dreams" is like sailing through Clouds... Derek, has lived this song......

Blessed to have lived in the era of many iconic guitar players. I've enjoyed Eric immensely.


Amen

This was always a fav clip of mine, It's from the Rolling Train tour of the 70's. A bit of a mild buzz he pours his bluesy little heart out.

I think most of you guys are missing the point about what the doc was about.It wasn't meant to be about his career at all more so about how he struggled with his identity most of his life.He clearly had issues with women and life in general,drugs helped him deal with the pain.He allowed himself to fall victim to all his insecuritys.The doc portrays a man a highly regarded one at that redeeming himself to the world for all his misgiving.Very humbling.He has helped so many people with the same issues in the last twenty years though his Crossroads Centre.So glad he's found happiness God Bless Him.

I agree with the last two posts... I find it to be quite depressing at certain points. His never ending search to find acceptance, rejection from his birth mother, the obsession with Patti, seemed like he wanted success but every time a band or project was achieving that desire he would walk away as if he felt he wasn't worthy... in the end is it really worth it?

I fully got what it was about, I think most of us who have had comments on it got what it was about. They wanted to wrap his career around a human interest story. It was good, I enjoyed it. I just wanted more about the music.

I find with most of these older rockers, it has all been said. Often people get upset when a doc leaves out information/stories that they already know. Never made sense to me as, you already know it.

Throw in the fact that many of these guys were warped out of their minds late 60/70s and they have memory issues. Gregg used to tell stories that evolved/changed overtime as do many of them. Either doesn't actually fully remember or just lied to alter a story for some reason.

A guy like Clapton has had his life picked apart from both a personal and musical standpoint to such detail, I almost know more about them than my brothers. So I am not sure what more people would like although I think the same people would always be left wanting more. That is not a bad thing and don't mean to imply it. But sometimers there is no more to be had.

I have found that the best way to get those "extra" stories has always been to talk to the actual people if the chance arises. I have been lucky over the years and met many. Usually have found out some cool stuff. Part of the trouble is when they are asked the same questions - you hear the same stories.

Plus like ourselves with our lives, they are not going to spread the XXX details of debauchery and tour buses.

I have been part of many parties with rockers that were definitely wilder than what I read in their books.

Just because the full story is known, doesn't mean a documentary shouldn't cover it. If the intent was a career spanning detailed story (which obviously this one wasn't) you have to tell stories that are known to all. The best will do it in ways or from perspectives that it hasn't been done before.

I hate the docs/biographies that go into too much detail about the debauchery. Too many of them do and it's almost all the same thing. A lot of times the ones who go into that kind of detail are the ones who never stopped being a scumbag anyway. We get it Motley Crue did a lot of drugs and lived 100 lives in 10 years. I like the ones that tell the story through the music, which is why we loved them in the first place.

That's what made "Running Down A Dream", "Living In The Material World" and "Please Call Home" great documentaries and Alan Paul's ABB book, Warren Zane's Petty book and Bob Mehr's Replacements book such great reads. They gave enough of the story to know the people involved had major flaws but used that to show how it impacted the music and the band.

That is the problem with having over 50 years of fame, fortune and success does - it creates too much to fit it all in one doc unless it is a 10 part mini series and no one is going to pay to make that.

I get your point. Books and films all hit us differently. Except for the odd case, I hate the first couple of chapters of most bios. Don't care about their first bikes, houses, schools, etc. But that is just me.

I think a character such as Clapton with such a personal and musical story to tell, you can't put it all in. So IMO - leave out the rehashed stories.

Much like being at a concert and hearing the one song that is played every time I try to keep the outlook of "there is always someone hearing it for the first time."
