Nobody Flashes…Remembering George

Nobody Flashes

A classic. And fitting because Paul was there, but Eric really carried that song. The reason it was such a hit in the first place was because he did the guitar solos on the FIRST recording.

The older I get, the more I think, that Clapton truly was the mentor for all guitar players that followed him. The first time I heard him I was a young girl, at a concert here in St. Louis with his band Cream. I was so taken by that experience that after the concert I walked out into heavy traffic…still hypnotized. and no, I was NOT on drugs or stoned.

Watching this, after George died, and knowing Eric married Pattie, George’s first wife, and THEN standing next to George’s son, who looks SO much like him it’s almost astounding the DNA…well, you wonder if these two, Paul and Eric know just how much the music they made have meant to so MANY people.

They create, because they HAVE to.

Eric took a simple song, and made you feel every note. I’m sure he was thinking of his old friend George. Probably even more than Paul.
