2.0 out of 5 stars Clapton buys a yacht . Big deal ! Who cares ?, 29 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Eric Clapton: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
A big fan of Claptons music but a good edit wouldn't go a miss with this book.I have read countless autobiograhy's of musicians writing about their alcohol and drug addiction.It gets a bit boring reading the same old stories and visits to rehab.Would certainly have enjoyed it more if he had actually written more about his music.What we are left with is a rather self indulgent view and sometimes arrogant persona of Clapton.Held my attention for some parts but towards the end it began to waffle.He almost brag's and goes on about himself when buying some big yacht, as if he is looking for somekind of congratulations. Dull in the extreme.There has to be something better and more interesting he could have written about than boasting about buying a big boat.Who cares? A little bit of humility and humour would have gone along way in making this a better book.
