What do you think about fleshing this bad boy out? Maybe make it look a little more official? Maybe a couple of youtube links under each name of killer performances.

I've noticed that a few of the vocal forum regulars tend to way overrate Clapton. I mean, he is good, and Derek and the Dominos/Cream are great, but, come on...

I think people in general tend to overrate Clapton.

No, no, guys, you have it all wrong. What about his legendary "Woman" tone?

If I quote Echoes every time he posts, will my messages be deleted too?

Thanks but I delete it that last one myself.

I am waiting YB to return.

It’s hard not to answer these crazy comments that Clapton is overrated.

Live at the Fillmore is one of my favorite albums (I've heard it dozens of times) and the live portion of Wheels of Fire is one of my favorites as well, but that doesn't mean I don't think Clapton is overrated.
