I was just listening to Blind Faith's one and only album. (And what a shame there weren't more!) I particularly love Clapton's song "In the Presence of the Lord." Gorgeous song! For those who don't remember, Blind Faith (born and died in 1969) was made up of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker (the drummer for the just-broken-up group Cream), Stevie Winwood (child prodigy from the Spencer Davis Group and Traffic), and Ric Grech, who was not well-known outside of local musician circles, but who was with later a member of the Buddy-less Crickets. Anyway, I had read in a few places that shortly after the breakup of the group, Clapton "recanted" his Christianity. Strange, I thought, because I'd always believed that his faith had gotten him through the tragic death of his son. So I looked all over the internet to see if he was ever asked about it, but I can't find anything definitive. I could find no interviews about it, so I figured maybe he wasn't anymore. Then, I came across a concert in 2007, Clapton and Winwood reunite to sing "Presence of the Lord," and both he and Winwood seemed pretty into it. (Link to the video at the bottom of this post.) So, my questions are: 1. Is Eric Clapton "still" a Christian? 2. What do you think of this song? 3. Do you have other thoughts about Blind Faith, any of the musicians in it or any of their other songs?
