Surprised noone has took up the George Harrison connection as around that time he was experimenting with slide guitar styles as illustrated in his 1970 masterpiece "All Things Must Pass" which features a certain Eric Clapton on several tracks.Also his slide guitar work on Lennons "Imagine" album was tremendous.I still think Duane was "the man" in question though.As for Sir Eric being a "racist"?? Absolute claptrap! He has had several black girlfriends over the years and has worked with countless coloured folk and blues musicians.I think he was like many people around that time simply concerned about immigration as an issue on the political agenda and not singing "send the buggers back" because of skin colour or any inherent hatred of our ethnic minority brothers and sisters.As for supporting Enoch ? Maybe he was his dealer at the time?
