While i'm not a huge fan of his, Clapton sets are welcomed here. Anyone who doesn't think so is just plain ignorant about music and the influence he's had over all genres of rock/metal. If you doubt this check out some stuff from when he was in Cream during the 60s. They were writting heavier blues inspirered rock before most bands, including Sabbath. In fact Tony Iommi has credited Eric Clapton's guitar sound with Cream as a major influence on him. In "N.I.B." Iommi uses a riff that sounds simular to Cream's "In The Sunshine Of Your Love"

So to sum this up:

No Eric Clapton = No Tony Iommi = no metal.

Statements like this, although I totally agree with you, frustrate me a bit. We can always trace it back as far as you want. If Robert Johnson weren't a poor black man, we wouldn't really have rock n roll, we wouldn't have metal. The chain goes back infinitely far. Also, I don't think you have to like person x because they had a huge influence on person y, who you love.

True. You can keep tracing everything back and go on and on it would be endless in music. I know you don't have to like someone because they influenced another that you like. I was merely trying to inform people who may not know the influence that Clapton has had on the hard rock/metal genres as a whole. He deserves respect at least and most deffinately is worthy of having sets posted on this forum.

Compared to some of the garbage that gets posted on here, and that includes metal bands, an Eric Clapton set being here is hardly anything to bitch about.

I saw Clapton back in 89 on his Crossroads box set tour. 2 1/2 of pure magic! and to make it even better he had Mark Knopfler of Dire Straights as his rhythm guitarist. He did all his hits and even the old Blind Faith song Can't Find My Way Home. He closed the show with Wonderful Tonight and Cocaine and came out for a second encore and let Knopfler do Money for Nothing. What else can I say, Clapton belongs here!
