Eric Clapton on "The Semi-Racial Thing"

Recommended Posts

In this short-but-meaty interview with Rolling Stone, Eric Clapton talks about the most uncomfortable part of watching his documentary, Life in 12 Bars. 

There was one scene that I was really uncertain about, which was the semi-racial thing that went down during my worst period. I made remarks onstage about foreigners [at a show in Birmingham, England in 1976]. Being the drunk that I was, I just went on a rant.

He goes on to explain how drugs made him unbearable, with only one person in his life that would stand up to him. Haven't seen the film, but I have heard some audio from that famous rant, where he said awful things about the "foreigners" in Britain.
