Paul And Eric Clapton

Postby EddieV » Wed Feb 15, 2012 12:18 pm

Have they become closer? EC was always more Georges friend and he also played with Lennon in 1969. I guess they are not friends, but respect each other??

Does Paul have any musician friends? He doesn't even hang out with Ringo. I keep wondering, when Paul passes on...who is going to organize the tribute?

I know for sure that Neil Young is a friend of Paul, so is David Gilmour. Clapton -don t really know think they had an argument concerning the tribute to George but they respect each other for sure. There are more for sure. Whenever our dear old Macca passes I am sure there will be a line of musicians who wants to arrange a tribute
Personally I find most of those tribute shows utterly disgusting and couldn t care less. I am sure there will be tributes now for poor Whitney with so called friends crying crocodile tears.

Based on the Obama concert and this past Sunday I'd think Dave Grohl would organize an excellent tribute.

Isn't Stevie Wonder his friend? Also, Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders, I think.

Elvis Costello as well..which was the connection to his wife Dianna Krall
As far as Eric I would assume they consider each other as friends..nice touch getting him to contribute to the album

first, i will agree with 2. he has never really hung out with other musicians the way...well...other musicians always seemed to.

it always seemed to me that EC would have made an ideal playing partner with paul. EC was never much of a songwriter...or singer...two areas where paul excelled. guess it's too late for that now. or is it?

maybe this collaboration will kindle a musical spark. one can hope.

Paul has his clique of musician friends he hangs out with-

George's were pretty much the Wilburys and Eric Clapton.

John's was Harry Nillson and to some extent Elton John and David Bowie.

Ringo is friends w/everyone.

Paul's musician friends:
1. Neil Young - appearantly, Neil and his long-time wife were BFFs with Paul and Linda, all 4 of whom appreciated a good smoke of the doobie. That is why Neil inducted Paul to the R&RHOF- I guess they have a pretty close friendship.

2. David Gilmore -- has been turning up on Paul projects since GMRTBS-- Gilmore credits Paul with helping him reform Pink Floyd after Waters left.

3. Chrissie Hynde was close to Linda and hence Paul.

4. Elvis Costello has continually showed up at Paul events, despite being weary of him at first.

5. Pete Townsend -- has turned up on multiple Paul projects.

6. Phil Collins

7. Brian Wilson has cited Paul as being good to him over the years.


Now THAT would be quite a band...

Phil Collins on drums
Brian Wilson on keyboards
Pete Townsend and David Gilmour on guitar
Neil Young and Elvis Costello on rhythm guitar
Chrissie Hynde vocals/backing vocals
and of course Paul on bass

Neil Young on rhytmguitar.NO WAY MAN. He is the one who s gonna blast out babed wiresolos on all the tracks. H e is the king of noice -the chairman of the punks and grunge the king of everything. And I would vote for Yoko Ono as leadsinger - she and Paul might not be friends but they are businessassociates for sure. I d like to hear her version of My Valentine
