Was the music of Eric Clapton any good in the 1980s?
1980s era Eric Clapton music gets kind of a bad reputation because many say that the 80s was when he released his worst music.
Well, I disagree with that. Clapton did in fact release some good stuff during the 1980s decade, it sold well for the most part and the fact of the matter is that the hit songs he had back then weren't "bad" at all.
Yeah, I will admit that you do hear a lot of synthesizer stuff from 80s Clapton, but bear in mind everyone was doing that at the time. Synths were huge in the 80s, having replaced the rock organs of the 70s. That was "the sound" back then, and at the time it was new and fresh, so you heard it a lot.
Clapton was very busy in the 1980s and the guy's music was everywhere. It was even in the movie Back to the Future from 1985 with the song Heaven is One Step Away; you can hear this on the Back to the Future Soundtrack CD.

That's a drum machine. I bought it for two reasons. First, my old Ensoniq SQ-1 Plus workstation synthesizer, which is over 20 years old, is […]
900GB Geocities torrent - but wish there was an HTML-only "lite" version ArchiveTeam has decided to do something pretty ballsy: They're releasing a 900GB torrent of all the old Geocities files. Yes, that's right, 900GB. As in 900 gigabytes of data. I have absolutely no idea how long it would take to seed that, much less download it. Will people download it? I won't (I don't have […]
