I refuse to listen to any Eric Clapton music after listening to the racist rant of Clapton in the 1970s.

 

I'll remove the gun pointed at your head. Consider yourself free of my demand that you listen to his music.

Footage of the outburst features in a new documentary about his career, “Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars,” and according to the Daily Mail, at a London Q&A session promoting the film, the 72-year-old musician said he was “disgusted” by his past.

“I sabotaged everything I got involved with. I was so ashamed of who I was, a kind of semi-racist, which didn’t make sense. Half of my friends were black, I dated a black woman and I championed black music,” he continued.

Known for his love of the blues, Clapton was also pals with several leading black musicians, including Jimi Hendrix and B.B. King, who he collaborated with on 2000 album “Riding with the King.”
