    That would be a sad day.

    Not good if he has to use a wheelchair, whether its bronchitis, diabetic nerve pain, parkinsons, etc., old age must be a crucifying gauntlet. Hope he can have some sort of relief short of death.

    On a positive note; he's looking better than Bowie.

    You know your getting old when your Rock n Roll hunks are in wheelchairs.

    He's lucky to have had the years he's had given his past. I know his family and friends will not waste the time they have now.

    This reminds me of the "Nobel disease", which is a metaphor describing how some Nobel Prize recipients embrace strange or scientifically unsound ideas, usually later in life, as they feel empowered by the award to speak on topics outside their specific area of expertise.

    Here, Clapton is some sort of Nobel Prize winner for guitar playing who becomes a self-proclaimed epidemiologist slash political scientist.

    Not to mention that I am not too excited with Eric Clapton to begin with.

    They say he is a great technician, "guitar hero" and stuff, but something's missing, probably a lack of creative spark, or shortage of personal charisma. What will he go down in pop/rock music "history" with ? See what I mean ? Snobs claim that Eric Clapton is great and all but what has he done with it?

    Less exciting than the Stones, less talented than Hendrix, less charismatic that Daltrey, etc. Famous enough to be picked for singing the song to Lethal Weapon number 64, probably good enough to become "Sir Eric" sooner or later, but a B-lister as fas as superstardom goes.

    That's my say and when he dies and if he dies before me, I'll write the same :-)
