Clapton wrote tears in heaven for his son and he also wrote Circus for his son which is a incredably sad song if you listen to the lyrics it will make you cry he also wrote a song called Holy Mother which is on the August album for His close friend Richard Manuel who Died in 1986 on tour with the Band another sad but beatiful song he makes you feel the grief and pain that he is going through with these three songs

  10. I saw YES at wembley arena on june 16th, the line up was Alan White, Chris Squire, Steve Howe, Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman, they seem to get better as the years roll on, they opened with Siberian Khatru , the most unexpected part was after the interval when they all came to the front of the stage and the roadies brought on a mini grand piano for Rick, and a snare drum and Hi Hats for Alan, and they Burst into a Acoustic Version of Roundabout it sounded incredible . Dont worry if you missed them theyll still be here for a long time yet

    Band Names

    THE BAND only the greatest band in the world could get away with being called that with only the most even talent in most bands you get one or two true talents in THE BAND they were all Equal each one offering his own True Musicianship they all contributed to songwriting they all new what was best for each song, they would switch instruments, switch vocal parts never play over each other, give each other space which made the songs great songs why do you think Bob Dylan wanted these guys on board he knew you couldn't get any better than this Why did Clapton desperatley want to join them why did George Harrison rate them as the best band ever does that mean better than the Beatles George? thats why they were allowed to be called THE BAND

  20. :drummer:I think ERIC CLAPTON wil be going strong in 20 yrs he plays what he wants to play and constantly gives credit to his inflences so i think he'll still be here to pass on that influence not just for Guitarists but for people who want to keep emotion in their music
