Eric ‘God’ Clapton


My daughter Kate, bless her born-in-the-90s heart, is polytheistic. She acknowledges the existence of David Bowie and Eric Clapton, and she acknowledges that both are God. So when I started sketching Mr Clapton, I naturally thought of her, and I chose an acrostic I thought she’d like.

Here are the words:

Elect acoustic, they say ‘G
Enter unplugg’d ecstasy–O
Excellence in modal D’
Even-handed normal C

Riffs that Weep & Seep & Wail
Reggaed sheriff rockful Layla

It’s a slow hand yet with pep
Indicates a Badge is kept

Cream, Blind Faith & Domino
Calypsodic Wisdom’s sown
