Now, compare this:

To this:

(the kid is Eddie’s son, Wolfgang) Near as I can tell, the latter image is from last August (Eddie went into rehab in March, I believe).

I have ranted at length in here about alcoholics and their levels of denial. . .but the woman I have ranted about seems to be doing better. . .and doesn’t Eddie look like a million bucks compared to his old self?

Here’s praying that both of these folks can persist in their sobriety.

I CANNOT get this song out of my head. . .it is one of the best I have heard in years.

Floatin’ down that old river boy, all my worries far behind,
Floatin’ down that old river boy, leave old memories way behind,
Yesterday is slowly fadin’,
All my life, I’ve been waitin’, for this time.

Floatin’ down that old river boy, leaves me feelin’ good inside,
Floatin’ down that old river boy, tryin’ to get to the other side,
Yesterday is slowly fadin’,
I been waitin’, now forever, for this ride.

[Refrain:]
Ride the river in this boat, ride the river.
Ride the river in this boat, ride the river.
Ride the river in this boat, ride the river.
Ride the river in this boat, ride the river.

Floatin’ down that old river boy, all my worries far behind,
Floatin’ down that old river boy, leave old memories way behind,
Yesterday is slowly fadin’,
I been waitin’, now forever, for this ride

[Refrain]

From the Album The Road to Escondido by Eric Clapton and JJ Cale

I am in the midst of writing a review of this album by two of music’s most storied guitarists.  Hopefully I can get it finished and put up here in the near future.

Per this CNN article.

Question:  Why must CNN post the most ridiculous picture possible while running this story?

The man has serious issues; he has been out of control for months, if not years.   It is a step in the right direction for him to finally get the help he desperately needs. . .and CNN runs that monstrous photo.

Here’s hoping that one of the protean rock guitarists of our age pulls it together.

I really dunno about the MSM.
