We all know what Eric Clapton looks like with his infamous Fender Stratocaster, Blackie (which he refers to as a "mongrel")... but not many people have seen Clapton in his more laid-back, hippie fashion mode. Long hair, blue jeans, acoustic guitar, and what looks like a mixed drink... probably mixed with Coca Cola (no we are NOT affiliated with Coca-Cola, but it DID win our taste test)!
With absolutely amazing blues guitar jams like Sunshine of Your Love, White Room and Crossroads... it's official, the graffiti is right:
Clapton is God!
I'll bet most of you didn't know the guitar work on The Beatles song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is played by Clapton... it's no wonder we LOVE that Beatles song (almost more than Helter Skelter)!!
Anyway, we're not positive if this is Clapton in his Yardbirds, John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek an The Dominos, or his solo period... but to be honest, we don't really care... with all the great jams and rockers he's brought us over the years, we think this "Cream" blues t-shirt is just the cats meow!!
It's getting hard to find rock t-shirts these days, that aren't obnoxious and just plain ugly... so we're totally head-over-heels for the simplicity of this shirt, and the way it captures the essence of 70's Clapton. Straight forward rock and roll with lots of musicianship and songwriting is what it was all about... viva Clapton!
