I watched the Eric Clapton Documentary last Saturday and was struck by a few things.
The snobbery towards The Beatles by some of their contemporary's was shocking.
Patty describing George the way she did shocked me.
So what did other viewers think.
I watched this documentary , i thought Clapton was very brave an honest , honest in the fact he knew he had many issues was a very conflicted person , didn't have the happy childhood most of us are lucky to have . His mum was not nice at all would be one of the reasons he turned to drugs and drink , he's lucky to still be with us. I didn't notice the sniping of the Beatles and i can understand Patti who had remained loyal to George speaking out after that he was far from perfect , it seems he had a few flings and Patti kept quiet. Yes i know she ended up going with Clapton but he was very damaged goods and as he said afterwards perhaps it would have been better for him to love from afar rather than actually being with her.
I agree a shockingly honest doc. I thought Patty calling George cold was something I did not expect. The bit I thought showed the snobbery was the section on the Christmas stage shows and Eric was quite dismissive about The Beatles being just a pop band and actually hating it while his band were all about the music.
As a doc it is worth catching if you have not seen it.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
