Clapton is GOD!! Comparatively speaking of course. Look at the bodies of work. I am not a big fan of either, but I'll take sloppy ass well written blues over technically perfect crappy tunes any day!!

Re: Eric vs. Eric... With Poll!

I like both and have listened to their stuff over the years with a lot of enjoyment. I haven't seen Clapton live, but EJ put on a good show when I saw him with Satch a few years ago. I gotta give Johnson the nod over Clapton in terms of technical prowess. But, Clapton speaks more deeply to me on a musical level than EJ, so EC gets my vote.

Carrots

That being said EJ, probably better guitar player, definitely from a technical point, but Clapton gave us Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs

Had to vote for Clapton, even though I don't listen to him much.

Re: Eric vs. Eric... With Poll!

Johnson gets my vote - far more talented musician, and far less of a drug addict and alleged racist.

Re: Eric vs. Eric... With Poll!

There should've been a "both" option. Both E's are outstanding musicians and they really don't play the same genre if you really think about it. EJ is more of a melodic shredder than EC will ever be and EC is more of a bluesman than EJ will ever be.

I didn't vote

I'll step up to support this, I just have never "got" Clapton.
