TV-Premiere: Eric Clapton Dokumentation „Life in 12 Bars“
Gestern feierte die von Showtime produzierte Dokumentation „Life in 12 Bars“ über Eric Clapton ihre Premiere. Zu Wort kommt darin neben vielen Prominenten Musikern, Weggefährten und Freunden auch Roger Waters, der Clapton 1984 für sein „Pros And Cons“ Album und die Tour als Lead-Gitarristen gewinnen konnte.
Roger Waters: Before Eric, guitar playing in England had been Hank Marvin of the Shadows, very simple, not much technique. Suddenly we heard something completely different. The records sounded unlike anything we had heard before.
