I never knew how he could sing that song in public. That must have been a soul wrenching task.

There could never be anything worse than losing a child. Clapton turned his grief into "Tears in Heaven," but don´t you know he´d give anything to trade that great song for having his son back again. The tears weren´t only his. God bless Eric, the father.

Re #3: "I never knew how he could sing that song in public."

Eric sang that most personal song on his acoustic "Unplugged" album. He could sing it live for the same reason that Elton John sang his and Bernie Taupin´s "Candle in the Wind" (reworked for Diana) in her funeral service: because he is a professional. That doesn´t make it any easier. But a pro performs. Eric and Elton are among music´s ultimate professionals.

Clapton is a very talented man. It is a miracle that he´s still alive after abusing drugs, alcohol and living through the loss of his child.

I will wonder what aspects of this tragic story are actually true and which only "based on a true story" (tabloids being tabloids, after all).

I think he can play that song because it´s cathartic. For a musician, working your problems out through your craft can be tremendously satisfying and help to heal wounds. I´m glad he has this outlet, just as I´m glad those of us who aren´t musicians have music of others to help us through our struggles.

I wanna see this doc.

Outtakes from the historic Apollo 11 moon landing have emerged 49 years after it occurred. Provided by NASA to the Project Apollo Archive, a project of self-proclaimed space enthusiast Kipp Teague, the images are sometimes not focused, others times look like accidental captures. Teague, who has made scans of the images and published them to Flickr, has some of the most well-known photographs on his site including the astronauts´ boot prints on the moon and collecting various soil samples and rocks. However, the new images provide readers with a behind-the-scenes, detailed view of the eight-day journey. The set of photos

One disastrous tweet has finally revealed Elon Musk for what he is: a fraud. Enraged that a British cave diver called his idea to rescue the Thai soccer team for what it was — “a p.r. stunt [with] absolutely no chance of working” — Musk took to Twitter and called him a “pedo.” Just like that, Tesla’s market value plummeted by $2 billion. Musk has been in business since 2002. His stated goal is nothing short of transforming humanity through his products: his electric cars, space travel, and an underground high-speed Hyperloop system. He has yet to succeed at anything but somehow spins every

Nearly two years ago, I moved with my daughter, who was then 7, from Yonkers to a small town in Pennsylvania. It’s minutes outside of New Jersey, but right in the heart of Donald Trump’s America. Sixty-one percent of the people in my county voted for him. Drive through most communities in my town and you’ll still see large blue Trump campaign signs on perfectly manicured lawns. Chances are, you’ll spot at least two newer-model pickup trucks with Confederate flag license plate frames. As I, a black woman, move through my daily routine, I exchange nonverbal social pleasantries with my neighbors

The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make
