Clapton, Eric

Originally recorded with Dylan at an unproductive sessions in London in May 1965. He subsequently worked in the studio with him in 1975 (for 'Desire'), 1976 (for 'No Reason To Cry') and 1986 (for 'Hearts Of Fire'), and guested at Dylan shows in 1978 and 1984.

No Reason To Cry brought together some heavyweights- Dylan and members of the Band- brought along their minor songs.

Eric Clapton, following Enoch Powell's "Rivers Of Blood" speech, at a 1976 gig in Birmingham: 
"Vote for Enoch Powell... I think Enoch's right, I think we should send them all back. 
Stop Britain from becoming a black colony. Get the foreigners out. Get the wogs out. 
Get the coons out. Keep Britain white." 
– thus single-handedly sparking the Rock Against Racism campaign. 
Clapton - who's made a career of playing blues music - has never detracted the comments, 
other than to say that he was drunk, and not racist, just anti-immigration.
