    Clapton is a racist? That plays black music? With black people?

    I knew about Dickens. I applaud him. I recall his wife was in and out of insane asylums.

    To be fair, from a distance they're indistinguishable. (holy shit, I can't believe I spelled that correctly).

    I assumed the Eric Clapton article would be about his shitty parenting skills.

    For Eric Clapton they should have mentioned stealing George Harrison's wife.

    Hate to shit in the punch bowl but yes, England is doomed. Anybody been to London? The country that brought you Isaac Newton, Winston Churchill, George Orwell, H G Wells, Charles Darwin, William Shakespeare and the Magna Carta is being demographically overrun by smelly towel-headed rug-riding Pakis. They've just been forced to include Islamic history in the national curriculum:

    George got sick of throwing away half of every pair of shoes she bought anyway, so he was glad to see her go.

    Same way a lot of things didn't get reported back in those days.

    I'm sure Page had the right amount of influential friends to make it go away.

    Of course today, you get reports on every insignificant detail, especially if it concerns a celebrity, with the media just hoping it gets momentum for the next "big one" .

    Dickens and Clapton outranked Penn, Page and Neil. You know, because bigotry and fat lady-hating are as bad as kidnapping, statutory ****, assault and manslaughter.

    Anyway, I had never heard of the Jimmy Page thing. I have a Led Zeppelin theory, though: Karma ended up getting them for their egregious plagiarism, one way or the other. Robert Plant's son died, Jimmy Page wound up looking Asian, Bonham drowned in booze and Jones was somewhat ostracized from the band during some later tours, but because he seems like a nice guy and probably wrote the most original material he ended up okay.

    And, yes, Clapton wasn't exactly wrong about England. There are more curry and kebab shops there than there fish n' chip shops. Case closed.

    To be fair, curry shops are very English. The English invented curry powder as a way to imitate the flavors of India. The style of curry you find in England is fairly unique to that country and has been there for a couple hundred years now.
