Eric Clapton - Wonderful Tonight
As we do a tune from every gig we work on I was suposed to do Ildivo...
Hm....not really my cup of tea... BUT I read a book :-D
"Eric Clapton, The Autobiography" A real great book, I read it in 2 days.
Its his full story from when he was born to present time.
Time to time very strong and sad story but it really got to me.
He was raised by her granparents, which he didnt know b4 10 years old.
The woman who was his "sister" was his mum. He grew up in a English town Ripley.
Many storys about other artists and specially George Harrison and also Jimi Hendrix.
I saw Eric last time he performed in Stockholm last year, a wonderful gig.
The tune of today have a special story, He and his girlfriend Patti was suposed to go on this party and Patti took sooo long time to put make up on, get the right clothes etc..and Eric was done in a moment and sat there and waited for her to get ready.....and waited and waited....then this tune came around :D
Eric Clapton held a party at his Surrey house celebrating his marriage to Patti Boyd. Clapton had set-up a small stage in the garden and as the evening progressed Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr ended up jamming together along with Clapton, Ginger Baker and Mick Jagger on May 19, 1979. They divorsed 1989.
Now Eric is married to Melia McEnery and still are.
Here is a earlier version.
