Just a quote, no more info.
BTW, the first supergroup was Cream, not Blind Faith...

I hope that it is not as bad as it sounds.

But it is increasingly difficult to know how much to believe what appears in the mainstream media, where real journalism has been replaced with propaganda, hearsay, rumour and downright lies. That mistake in the article is no surprise either.

Yes - looks like they took a quote to make a story out of it. At least EC keeps on playing...

May it long continue. :fingerscrossed:

I'm not keen on the way getting older and playing a musical instrument are not always a good match.
The increasing aches and pains and worse over the years are not on my wish list.

Face it. He is an older gentelman and has the right to have ailments. He does what he can to accept them in order to gain inner peace.

It is no secret that he is the man who has done himself harm with drugs and alcohol. There is not anyone getting away with injuries.
EC is famous and rich, but only human and can not withstand more than other people.
Put him not on the pedestal.
