David Bowie calls Eric Clapton an old sock

It might appear Eric Clapton is displaying a self-deprecating sense of humor with his new album that's coming out March 12th.

The album, which includes two new songs written by Clapton and lots of old standards, is called "Old Sock."

Now according to an Eric Clapton fan site, he got the title from David Bowie. Earlier this year, Clapton contacted Bowie to let him know that he liked his new song, "Where Are We Now."   In response, Bowie said something like, "Thanks, you old sock," which  Clapton thought would make a great title for his new album.

So there you have it!

The album has a little bit of everthing--some reggae, some blues (a cover of Gary Moore's "Still Got the Blues), and even some old standards ("All of Me," "Goodnight Irene", and "Our Love is Here to Stay.")

Some other "old socks" appear on the album too--including Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, and JJ Cale.

Here's the official lyric video for one of the two new songs on the album. It features Chaka Khan on backing vocals.

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
