We met secretly at a flat in South Kensington. Eric Clapton had asked me to come because he wanted me to listen to a new number he had written.
He switched on the tape machine, turned up the volume and played me the most powerful, moving song I had ever heard. It was Layla, about a man who falls hopelessly in love with a woman who loves him but is unavailable.
He played it to me two or three times, all the while watching my face intently for my reaction. My first thought was: ‘Oh God, everyone’s going to know this is about me.

My favorite covers of Stevie…
best insult ever
"It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)" by Louis Armstrong & Duke Ellington.
Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
i always look at these with skepticism because it seems completely unbelievable to me that the police could actually do this, but then why are there so many reporting it?
is tesco feeling ok
why cant my local branch be cuhrazy and fun like this. instead it just has one of my creepy old teachers who always happens to be there when i am
My mom called my doctor and said to him “What’s the most accurate measurement for weighing?”
The doctor said “An underwater weighing test”
And just like that, my mom said “Yes. When can my son and my daughter can take it?” and the doc said “Today at 2pm.”
So, I didn’t bother taking a shower and so did my sister too, so I had to get into a special swimming suit(tight pants…Ugh).
My sister said “Can I pull my hair down to a ponytail?” The doctor said “No.”
So my sister with her long, blonde hair went underwater with 8 seconds and had she must enjoyed it..but I didn’t.

August 11th 2014 - Day 224
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Tin Pan Alley
I felt that my return to blogging should be christened with some beautiful and downright amazing blues; so expect some treats over the next few weeks.
I first heard Stevie in 1986, at the time I was into punk, thrash, and metal of all sorts. My older brother brought home the ‘Texas Flood’ album one day, and played it to me. I was hooked. Ever since that moment I have been in love with the blues, and even though I still love a huge variety of other music, the blues is the one style that really makes my bones shiver.
Enjoy Stevie (and Johnny Copeland) and have a great day.
