I have officially listened to all of his recordings and I can't see what the big deal with that fool is.
In fact all of the stuff outside of Cream and "Layla" sucks really hard.I Personally think Clapton is nowhere near the league Page,Hendrix,Iommi and Blackmore were.

that is personal opinion but i can tell you that your personal opinion is WRONG

Clapton is better than page iommi blackmore and was one of hendrix's main influences

Yeah its MY opinion..

the stuff he did with john mayall's blues breakers was pretty decent...
#8
While I agree he wasnt near the Page, Hendrix, Blackmore chops, he was still very good an versatile and influencial, he's still a pretty good guitarist.
#9
Well, people do have opinions. So, there's nothing I can change about what you think, nor do I want to.

In that lies the answer. OPINIONS. He's good to some, which is why they like him. Duh.
#10
Its not about what his music is in comparison to Hendrix, Iommi, etc. Its about how he approached the blues and pop and made them work well together.

Sure he isnt technically as good as some other guitarists, but he is a great songwriter
#11
I never mentioned anything about being technical

its all down to personal preference, but you can't just make statements like that. I'm sure we have plenty of Cream/Clapton fans on here, you can't just tell them they're all wrong...

EDIT: I very much doubt you've listened to all of his recorded work, theres gotta be some stuff that hasn't come out. But reading all your posts, thats not gonna change your mind....

More people hate Page than Clapton.
Personally, I think Clapton is one of the greatest White Blue-sy Guitarists.

I agree... He doesn't deserve all the recognition he is getting.
Don't get me wrong...he is still good but not that good.

very reasonable

along with gilmour, clapton has the best phrasing

I am not a fan of Gilmour either coincidentially

You have to really dig blues to like clapton.. I like his earlier work a lot and although I wouldnt put him on the same level as hendrix I personally feel that he blows page away... Ive never heard anything Jimmy Page has done thats even in the same ballpark as clapton but thats just a personal opinion.
I keep the wolf from the door, but he calls me on the phone, tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up, steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom, but I'll never see them again If I squeal to the cops.

I wholeheartedly disagree, but that's my opinion. Simple as that.

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
