Although he is universally considered among the most important figures in rock & roll, Eric Clapton has not had consistent success in translating his stature into record sales, partially because he is, in essence, a great blues guitarist rather than a great pop/rock singer/songwriter. Clapton's career was in decline in the early '80s when he switched record labels from Polydor to Warner Bros., and his debut Warner album, Money and Cigarettes, became his first to fall below gold record status in more than six years. As a result, Warner looked critically at his follow-up, the Phil Collins-produced Behind the Sun, in the fall of 1984 and rejected the first version submitted, insisting that he record several new songs written by Jerry Williams, backed by Los Angeles session players under the auspices of company producers Lenny Waronker and Ted Templeman. Warner then emphasized the new tracks, releasing two of them, "Forever Man" (which reached the Top 40) and "See What Love Can Do," as singles. The resulting album, not surprisingly, was somewhat schizophrenic. It was hard to believe that Warner could have heard the leadoff track, "She's Waiting," and not realized its potential to be a hit single, though the company may have been correct in thinking that the album as a whole was competent without being very exciting. The added tracks were not bad (and, in fact, Clapton later would add session players Nathan East and Greg Phillinganes to his band), but they were not the sure-fire hits they were supposed to be. As usual, there was some effective guitar soloing (notably on "Same Old Blues"), but despite the tinkering, Behind the Sun was not among Clapton's best -- although it went gold after nearly two years in release.

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…

Kraftwerk, 50 ans d'avance

Groupe de musique électronique le plus influent de l’histoire, Kraftwerk, fondé par le duo Ralf Hütter et Florian Schneider, qui s’est éteint le 6 mai 2020 des suites d’un cancer, a toujours été en avance sur son temps. En avance sur la technologie, sur la composition, sur les performances scéniques, les Allemands ont prouvé au grand public que les machines étaient aussi capables d’émotions et ouvert la voie pour la techno, la new wave et même le hip-hop.

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.
