Two verses dedicated to Eric Clapton
Once in your life
You get such a choice
To win a good wife
To make a good noise
Tears on the earth
Clouds in the sky
Death and rebirth
Never ask why
Eric C. looking back as he was 13 years old: I just managed to convince my grandmother that it was a worth while that was something to do, you know, and when I did finally get the guitar, it didn't seem that difficult to me, to be able to make a good noise out of it.
In 1991 Clapton's son Conor died at the age of four and a half, when he fell out of an open bedroom window on the 53rd floor of a Manhattan apartment building. Afterwards he composed ‘Tears in heaven’, one of his most popular songs.
