No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States.
-- George Washington
I forgot to pay homage to your display of Claptonia. Truly, has there ever been one given so little regard for the fact that he plays an instrument with such dexterity, diversity - sometimes while strung out, sometimes while drunk, sometimes while heartsick? Unlike Stevie Ray Vaughan, Clapton managed to have a disciplined approach to the blues (which is not to slight Stevie Ray in any way), going for a certain compromise between melody and the rather strict dictations of the form. Even when he plays such classic blues as "Crossroads", he gives it a melodic edge that is a thing of beauty. Also, I've always liked the fact that he quotes "Meet me in St. Louis" during his solo on "Sunshine of Your Love".
