Comments: This comes off as if Clapton wrote and directed it, which says something about the director's skill. There's so much missing here, but that's the point. It tells a very specific story: Clapton is/was an asshole, according to him. Heroin and Alcohol had a lot to do with it. And his mom was an asshole.
Fact is, Clapton was as far out there spiritually and artistically as all his friends and colleagues who died, but deep down he was a goofy, clean-cut nerd who survived.
I've never owned one of his records, although I have several tracks on my iPod. I don't give a shit bout him but I enjoyed this.

Summary: A look at the life and work of guitarist Eric Clapton, told by those who have known him best, including BB King, Jimi Hendrix, and George Harrison.
