Come on. Comparing Clapton with Ali? Laughable. Ali faced jailtime and could not compete during his prime. Clapton said something saucey at a show in the 70s while addicted to heroin.You know what the whole Fuxing world had become way too sensitive for me. Because its Clapton the guy cant have have a right or an opinion or is it because he's Clapton he is supposed to only have far leftist Hollywood elite views on the world only.
Let me remind you this is the same guy that in the mid 70's caught hell because he said he supports Enoch Powell and his immigration policies and stated " “I don’t want you here, in the room or in my country,” Clapton said. “Listen to me, man! I think we should vote for Enoch Powell. Enoch’s our man. I think Enoch’s right, I think we should send them all back." and right away the guy was dubbed a racist.
The man has a right to his opinions both personally and politically and he dont need the worlds approval weather he decides to share them or not or even explain them. Muhammed Ali was dubbed a hero for his political views on the war and becoming a Muslim and because he was black that was just fine. Some would say he was a draft dodger and used the Muslim faith to dodge the war. Clapton was dubbed a racist for his immigration views in the 70's and now Clapton certainly dont need Robert Cray, The WP, or Rolling Stone's permission but yet he is now dubbed SHAMEFUL!
That’s exactly what happened and the lady took it to court. She was advised against this by the judge, she persued and lost. EC had no direct involvement in this.So i just read this.

I suppose I get why he did it - it comes down to copyright laws and so on...
But couldn't he just have had his lawyers send a cease and desist?
