Thanks for the insight Eric Clapton
on 26 June 2017
This is an autobiography and Eric Clapton is a musician , not a writer and it shows in the style of writing .
The text is sometimes a bit clunky but I feel its written from the heart .
EC seems to have had it all ; fame and money at a very early age is not always a good combination .
His descent into alcohol and drug abuse has been well documented but in this book, you feel like you are going down with him - its a no holds barred kind of feeling .
He writes from the heart about losing his son and meeting his wife Melia and his feelings on becoming a father to three girls .
Its an interesting book , not terribly "in depth" at times , but it does show that when ghost writers write autobiographies they tend to use a lot of "fill" to make the book longer maybe or to dramatise certain events - there's none of that in this book - its very "down to earth ".
I wish Eric well, , he's been part of my own life for a very long time and given a lot of pleasure through his music and guitar playing and I hope that although he's now 72 with very young daughters , he lives a long and happy life and sees them grow up without any of the problems he himself experienced .
Thanks for the insight Eric .
