    My first thought was "Tears in Heaven." I don't even really care for the song, maybe because it is so sad.

    If it makes you feel better, EC only held his son a single time in 4.5 years.

    He did not want the child and used to have his managers call and threaten Lory that she better have an abortion.

    He would never play with him, only stare at him.

    Sad AND haunting, powerful stuff.....

    It Was Written- Damien Marley




    And it was written
    Up in the book of life
    That man shall
    Endure forever more

    And it was written
    Up in the book of life
    That man shall
    Endure forever more

    Well did the pen is stronger than the knife
    They can kill you once but they can't kill you twice
    Did you know destruction of the flesh is not di ending to life
    Fear not of the anti-Christ
    Did you know that I exist before the Earth
    An did you know that my eyes are windows to the world
    Did you know you can't go ah Zion and wear Jerry curls
    Can't tell di boys from di girls
    Your body is just a vehicle transporting you soul
    It's what's inside of people is beauty to behold
    Fear not of evil
    Every day dem flesh it grow old
    Changes of the times take a toll

    And it was written
    Up in the book of life
    That man shall
    Endure forever more

    And it was written
    Up in the book of life
    That man shall
    Endure forever more

    Fear is in the eye of the beholder
    Love is in the presence of the love maker
    Life is in the words of the comforter
    Endure much longer, live much longer
    Fear is in the eye of the beholder
    Love is in the presence of the love maker
    Life is in the words of the comforter
    Endure much longer, live much longer

    I always get a little misty on this one.


    Also, I think this is one of the saddest songs on that double album/movie.

    I don't think you are fairly representing the text of the article. You have cherry-picked a few statements without accurately accounting for the context of those statements. She does not say that he only held his son once in 4.5 years. Her statement that "He would never play with Conor. He would just look at him as if he was a world apart from him," is clearly intended to be hyperbolic, not literal. And I notice you have conveniently left out her story about Eric taking Conor to the circus: "Conor and I had come to New York for Easter to spend time with Eric and he had taken Conor to the circus on Long Island. They had such a great time. When Eric got back he looked at me and said, 'I now understand what it means to have a child and be a father.' He was so happy." That sure doesn't sound like the guy you are describing in your post. And Eric was taking them to the Central Park Zoo on the day of the accident.

    An article published in the Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/a...got-revenge--little-help-George-Harrison.html) says, "The tragedy ripped the couple apart and they separated shortly afterwards. Lory says: 'With Eric, I couldn't talk. He was always very distant, even worse after Conor's [death].'" Again, Lory tells us in her own account that she and Eric were actively involved until the time of Conor's death. What's more, she verifies that Clapton was distraught following the death of his son, an emotional state that eventually drove the couple apart.

    I'm not a huge fan of either Clapton or of the song, but Clapton's real, honest emotional distress is in the song. That's why I contributed it to the list.

    Read Lori's and of course Pattie's book to see what kind of man he is.
