Your last post was very good.

I think Eric should do want he wants, and not pander
to anyone.  That doesn't mean I don't want a really rockin'
album (because I really do), but he can't just listen to fans who
are stuck on Cream, D&D, harder rock, or whatever.  It's
obvious he hasn't been pandering to anyone or doing it for the
money.  If that was so he wouldn't be making a techno/trip-hop/jazz
album under a pseudonym, and he would have make Disraeli Gears II
by now.  He hasn't which means he is trying to move in the direction he
wants as an artist at that particular moment.

I do agree he needs a little shake-up in some fashion.  It doesn't have
to be in that he makes an album exactly like I want, but maybe in the 
It wouldn't hurt to switch that up a little which would bring a little more
spontaneity for himself not just us.  I would love to see him play a 
guitar, but if he's happy with the Strat that's cool as well.

Anyway, regardless if I agree with the posts or not we all should
have our opinions, and stay respectful to EC...and each other maybe.
