The hits just keep coming.
Eric Clapton is losing the ability to play the gitter. I actually knew this. There was an article in Rolling Stone (on the website at least) where he was discussing his new record and he mentioned a nerve issue that was making things difficult. The reporter was either a clueless moron and failed to pose a follow up question like say, what nerve issue? Or, he was a disturbingly awful writer who left out the nerve discussion. Or, his editor is a shit head.
Regardless, there’s a story out now where Clapton goes into a tiny amount of detail. I have no idea what peripheral neuropathy is, but if it takes away Clapton’s ability to play the blues then it’s the worst thing ever. Just please Ricky, don’t go doing what Keith Emerson did. Please.
