Many years ago when revising for my O Levels (yes, it was that long ago!) I was listening to Radio Caroline, and I heard a wonderful track called “Layla” by Derek and the Dominoes. Last night I got my ticket to go and see Eric Clapton for the fourth time in the Budokan in Tokyo, for his fourtieth anniversary tour of Japan – which means he first came here the year after I did my O Levels.
I was listening to Radio Caroline again this morning on the internet, which brought back some good memories as they still play great music. No Clapton today – but I’ve got the real thing in 4 weeks time.
