Eric Clapton: Timepieces
Charles Shaar Murray, NME, 29 May 1982
IN A SENSE, it doesn't really matter whether one thinks of Eric Clapton as the man whose pioneering plagiarism helped black artists ranging from B.B. King to Bob Marley to take their earliest steps towards the lucrative white rock audience, or as the drunken shithead whose disgusting onstage outburst at a Birmingham gig several years ago provided the impetus that ended up creating Rock Against Racism.
