Clapton Is Y-----

This is sweet: Via NPR Music (the world's coolest iPhone app) I learned about a recurring series where obsessed, nostalgia-tripping geezers pressure malleable, desperate-to-please interns veteran NPR staffers invite their young colleagues to review classic rock albums they've never heard before. Here Beca Grimm gently patronizes "Disraeli Gears." Reminds me of the time I slow-danced to "Sunshine Of Your Love" in 19--... Oh, never mind!

God, Cream was so overrated! I remember the first time I listened to "Wheels of Fire." A double album with one side of decent music? Clapton may have been god, but he was one of those gods who, while demanding your worship, never delivered the goods.

The NPR intern seems to have his/her head on straight. Our only hope is our beautiful children. Let's stand back and turn them loose.

Thanks for the comment! On "Wheels of Fire" I didn't care that much for the studio sides, either, but the live stuff, I loved, especially "Spoonful" and "Crossroads." But that was the time for that kind of thing.
