Eric Clapton New Album 2010!

Post by drockadam »

Hello Everyone I'm Back! :cool:

I just wanted to hear you're opinions about Eric Clapton's new album coming out soon! They have released the album artwork.

Supposedly some of the songs Eric has been doing on tour will be on the CD. Eric said in the Rolling Stone issue with Jeff Beck, That every song he's ever wanted to cover will be in this album, plus new written songs! I'm excited! :nuts:

Give Me You're Opinions.

I agree with the hair. He looks horrible. His best hair by far was the mid 90's period.

I hadn't heard about this. Now I'm excited, too! I'm hoping those covers he's talking about are all blues covers! Any word on the songs yet?

(and for the record, I do like the hair)

@Strummer07: Everything is great, I was getting a little worried about why my old login wouldn't login then I found out why, on this site. They changed forums!

@LeftyBlues: I don't like Mr. Clapton's look too much. I didn't think he was going to go on tour in 2010 like that but, you never know. 90's Clapton hair was amazing!

@tradrrr: I only know that "When Someone Thinks You're Beautiful" and "Slide Song (A)" from Claptons 2010 tour is going to be on there. Either than that I have no clue what's going to be on the album. Read the edition of Rolling Stone Magazine with Clapton/Beck on the front well. Clapton tells a little bit about the new album. I think it's going to be a cover album, or tribute.

I've heard he was recording with JJ Cale. I wonder if he is then covering some of his songs on that too.

Eric Clapton was indeed working with J.J Cale on this album. I just got some more news about the album, Eric started working on this new album in 2009. Here's a photo of Eric and his crew outside Ocean Way Studios in early July 2009. This photo can't be from 2010, his hair isn't like that anymore. Let me know what you think?

I dont think JJ will be playing full time on this one, maybe one or two. If it's a blues cover album like From The Cradle, I think he would just be producing. Clapton always said he wanted to "create the vibe that you get when JJ produces". I really do hope its an all blues album, some of his newer original albums have been lacking something I.E. "Back Home".

Yeah, I didn't like Back Home at all. I wish it's blues, I think JJ will be on a track or so. You never know with Mr. Clapton.

I've been messaging two guitar magazine publisists in the U.K, They already have Eric's new album for reviews in the UK. They say it's very bluesy. I can't wait to hear the album! I wonder if some stuff will leak? I hope so!
