10/04/06 - ERIC CLAPTON Rethinks His Pledge Against Cocaine

The former superstar drug and alcohol addict Eric Clapton refrained from performing the song at the time of his sobriety, but has recently decided that the song can be used as an anti-drug song and therefore can be portrayed in a more positive light by careful review of the lyrics. Current renditions of the classic rock song will now feature his backing band shouting "dirty cocaine" through it.

Clapton states. "I thought it might be giving the wrong message to people who were in the same boat as me."But further investigating proved the song, if anything, if it's not even ambivalent, it's an anti-drug song. And so I thought that might be a better way to do it, to approach it from a more positive point of view. And carry on performing it not as a pro-drug song, but just as a reality check about what it does. It's one of those songs that you can take it any way you like. But it very clearly says in the opening verse, 'If you wanna get down, down on the ground,' I mean that is the focal point of the song. That's what the song's about, is that, you know, there's a price"
