Patron Book Reviews


I have 2 book reviews on similar books:The first one is "Wonderful Tonight", by Patty Boyd. Before reading this book, I didn't know that much about Eric Clapton, but I was surprised (and disappointed) to learn from this book how much of an alcoholic/drug addict Eric Clapton had been while he was very poplular. Much of this book focused on this, and how horrible the relationship was between Patty and Eric.The original idea of the book was how, while she was married to George Harrison (of Beatles fame), Eric Clapton fell in love with her, and then she divorced George to be with Eric.In my opinion, she left a wonderful, loving man to be with someone who was heavily into drugs and alcohol.The second book is, "Clapton", (the autobiography), by Eric Clapton himself. This book was far better than the first one, and even though his alcohol/drug abuse was mentioned quite frequently, it was interspersed with names of all of the famous people he met along the way during his musical career, how he taught himself to play the guitar, his pitiful (but interesting) childhood, etc.I found this book to be far more interesting and much better written than "Wonderful Tonight".Thank God Eric Clapton has since become sober, because he is a very talented musician, as well as a very talented writer.
