Clapton over SRV!?! Are y'all shitting me?




Eric Clapton would shit himself if he ever played anywhere near as great as that.

Clapton himself would be embarrassed by that result.

I'm not going to get into which guy is better but I will bring up these points. SRV died in the middle of his prime. Clapton has been around forever. Longevity may have weighed into the minds of some voters. Also familiarity for the same reason.

To me I got bored with Stevie, it was a repetive riff he played to me.  A great one, plus its just Doyle Bramhall's style.

Clapton has been around forever, yes, but he peaked with Cream and has pretty much done pure shit since..

Blind Faith was tremendous and so were Derek and the Dominoes. Clapton's last great album was Slowhand.

yeah, my bad..I guess what I meant to really say is once he got out of the "band" element and went solo there in the 70's it's all been downhill..

Clapton got away from the guitar hero thing , but still occasionally shows up when challenged, his Crossroads festival is a good example, jams with Buddy guy and other select spots, SRV was in another world while on this one

so if he would have died early like Stevie and Jimi then he'd be great?  I wonder what Jimi and Stevie would be doing today musically if they had lived.  Both are great.  Never saw Jimi in person but I saw Stevie play.

That's just the way it goes.  Die in your prime so no one sees the downfall.  If Jim Morrison were alive today, I have no doubt he'd look like Fat Elvis and he'd be playing in a band called Jim Morrison's Doors (not to be confused with The Doors Featuring Ray Manzarek) and he'd have trouble drawing 200 people because he'd insist on 30 minutes of spoken word crap during his sets.  He would've shown up last year at an Occupy Wall Street event drunk off his ass and gotten arrested for disorderly conduct and not be able to afford his bail.  This after a moderately successful comeback attempt in the '80s made possible by the hugely popular Bic Lighter "Light My Fire" commercial.
