Eric Clapton – Thoughts On Prince

“I’m so sad about the death of Prince, he was a true genius, and a huge inspiration for me, in a very real way….

In the middle of my depression, and the dreadful state of the music culture at that time it gave me hope, he was like a light in the darkness… I went back to my hotel, and surrounded by empty beer cans, wrote Holy Mother…. I can’t believe he’s gone….”
