[Slowhand] Eric's setlist choices - it is his show!

Maybe Eric likes playing these songs and that they mean something to him!

I think it would be grossly inaccurate for any of us to assume what Eric likes or doesn't, what he thinks is commerical or isn't.

On the setlist generally, I don't understand the argument made by a number of folks on this list that we should accept Wonderful Tonight - Layla - Cocaine in every show because casual and uninformed fans expect them, and commercial considerations require EC to design his show for those marginal fans. To me, this is exactly the problem and the thing that most disappoints me - the fact that EC loads up his set with music that he doesn't care about and hasn't played with passion for years and years, because he wants to be more "commercial," and then gets up there and just goes through the motions. I agree that this is what happens, but I sure don't see it as a "defence" of EC - I see it more as an indictment.

Whatever happened to being an "artist," and playing music that means something to you?
