My late high school buddy Robbie Borrink,a right-handed guitar god,would have mopped the floor with Crapton even if Robbie played left-handed !!!!!!

I have the answer, because it doesn't "test well" among people that take tests to win tickets to a concert that was selling so poorly the promotor gave the station a bunch of tickets.

I don't think he's in a wheelchair. He's touring. Granted, he might be sitting on stage in a Rascal for all I know.

Clapton was quite the asshole back in the day (might still be). But you're right. He's perfect for dental offices.
Pushed through an airport, two years ago after canceling gigs....

Jesus, I hope you're not a reporter. The guy was spotted in a wheelchair once two years ago and you're saying he's confined to it now? Are you and Noah prepared to build an ark when we get a couple inches of rain?

Based on what?
I listened to a slew of his albums and found his guitar playing merely average. Tone, technique, all underwhelming and boring. Its not exciting, its not emotive, its not innovative.

These days, my favorite guitarist is Sonny Landreth. The greatest slide guitarist not named Allman. We have a mutual friend and I have been in his company several times. He is as pleasant and approachable as can be.

John Ripper has a lot of the local shows with Sonny on video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbZ4Dh7vQIc

In the Rolling Stone magazine issue on "The 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time", Clapton is # 2 & the late Jimi Hendrix is # 1.

The song "Mainline Florida" by Clapton is a great song!!! (from 1974 "461 Ocean Boulevard")

Les Paul, Wes Montgomery, and Chet Atkins were some of the greatest.

Chet Atkins & Les Paul "Chester & Lester" (1976) & their follow - up "Guitar Monsters" (1978) are worth hearing!! Les Paul cracks up the jokes!!!
