Si l'on remontait le temps et qu'on expliquait au Eric Clapton de 19 ans, celui qui venait de quitter les Yardbirds parce que leur For Your Love sonnait trop pop, qu'un jour il enregistrerait un album de Noël, il ne le croirait pas une seconde et menacerait de vous assommer à coups de guitare. C'est sûr, le Clapton de 73 ans est un autre homme. Non seulement il a surmonté bien des épreuves, mais il semble aujourd'hui serein et apaisé, goûtant enfin les joies d'une vie de famille aussi heureuse que possible. Avec de vraies fêtes autour de la cheminée, donc. Il ne faut pas aller plus loin pour comprendre qu'il a plus le droit que n'importe qui de proposer sa version des classiques White ChristmasSilent Night, ou Away in a Manger (Once in Royal David’s City), d'y ajouter des titres plus rares, comme Sentimental Moments (immortalisé en 1955 par Joan Bennett), Lonesome Christmas (de Lowell Fulson et repris depuis par B.B. King ou Joe Bonamassa) ou ce Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas interprété par Judy Garland ou Frank Sinatra, mais qui figurait aussi sur l'album de Noël des Jackson 5 (quand le petit Michael avait 12 ans). Même Chrissie Hynde l'a chantée avec les Pretenders, c'est dire… 

Eric Clapton a même composé sa chanson de Noël, For Love on Christmas Day, qui est loin d'être ridicule dans ce style particulier. Elle se fond dans le décor "sapin et guirlandes" d'autant mieux que l'ensemble a été immanquablement "claptonisé", avec une haute dose de blues du meilleur goût. La seule exception, qui en étonnera plus d'un, reste ce Jingle Bells version EDM que le musicien a dédié à Avicii, dont la disparition l'a d'autant plus touché qu'il a fait le parallèle avec ses jeunes années autodestructrices. Cadeau supplémentaire, c'est Clapton lui-même qui a dessiné le joyeux père Noël de la pochette (un autoportrait ?). Vous savez quoi mettre dans quelques petits souliers… © Jean-Pierre Sabouret/Qobuz

Eric Clapton dans ses petits souliers

Une version EDM de “Jingle Bells”, un “Lonesome Christmas” ou un “White Christmas” plus blues, sur un album de Noël (“Happy Xmas”), vous en rêviez ? Eric Clapton l'a fait. Après tout, si même Bob Dylan a sacrifié à la tradition (sur “Christmas in the Heart”), pourquoi pas “Dieu” lui-même ? C'est loin d'être la première fois que le musicien anglais, qui va sur ses 74 ans, s'éloigne d'un blues plus ou moins traditionnel, mais à ce point-là…

La britpop en 10 albums

« Si le but du punk était de se débarrasser des hippies, le nôtre est d’en finir avec le grunge. » Lorsque Damon Albarn assène cette phrase en 1993, l’Angleterre s’apprête à reprendre sa place sur un échiquier musical envahi par Seattle avec le grunge et Nirvana. Profondément liée à la vie politique et l’identité locale, la pop britannique se révèle au moment où Tony Blair et le New Labour entrent en scène. Le romantisme anglais redevient attractif par rapport à l’identité américaine, jugée trop creuse outre-Manche. Place à la « Cool Britannia ».

J.J. Cale, le blues pépouze

Plus de cinq ans après sa mort, impossible de ne pas se ressourcer régulièrement auprès de la musique de J.J. Cale. Avec son alliage atypique de blues, folk, country et jazz, celui que vénérait Clapton et qui passa une partie de sa vie dans un mobil-home reste encore aujourd’hui l’un des ermites les plus influents du rock.
