Mum was and is a great fan of Clapton's music. She got into him during the late 80s when her brother, my Uncle John (a brilliant guitarist too), started listening to him. They were both young then and were bored with the pop music around at the time and they had a passion to make it in the music business themselves. Actually, Mum did, as a singer, but my Uncle didn't much care to be famous, though he is a great musician.
Anyway, Mum loves guitars (though she can't play herself) and she has a long list of favourite guitarists but there is something about Clapton's guitar playing that touches her. Deeply. When she hears him play those amazing solos, it's as if he is bleeding out her own pain. It was like that then, and now, after many years of not listening to him, she's started to again. And you know what? It's still the same. Her pain is always there. Yeah, Mum is a bit of a tortured soul. Always has been as you all know by now. Yeah, Mummy's got the blues...
So here are a few Clapton tracks she loves and the solos are amazing. Picture Mum doing some air guitar now. Yeah, funny 😻
