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: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a...

Will this be Clapton's last record?
Eric Clapton definitely has retirement in mind. He hinted to Rolling Stone recently that he may quit touring and recording, and only play for family and friends. We can look forward to at least one more new Clapton record before he hangs up his Strat...
