Capable is too relative a term. Eric Clapton was a peoples musician, one who people came to watch (which, in the end, is what you're playing for isn't it?). "The God" is not unlike "The Wall" or "the little master" or any other phrase that catches on....as is Mr. Slowhand. I've never been that big a fan but I've been a fan of countless musicians who were influenced by him.

And surely youíll buy your pint cup !
