Never been a huge Clapton fan but the thrill of another visit to the Royal Albert Hall was a major attraction. I had to take a sick day or two from work and somehow managed to persuade my mum to ring for me on the Monday morning!
I was unfamiliar with a high proportion of the 26 songs he played this night as he had just released a blues covers album, From The Cradle, but I could still marvel at a legendary guitar player at work.
Stayed the night with a friend (his name was Dick...he would go on to drum in a local band...I was very jealous of this as I was and still am useless at all musical instruments) at his very rich uncle's house in London. A big eye opener to say the least. From that day I decided that when I was rich I would buy a house like his in London and so be able to go to lots of gigs and bring chicks home. The rock n roll lifestyle instead passed me by however I live in hope.
