The correct answer was, “Day ‘O The Banana Boat Song” by the great Harry Belafonte!…Jumping On Fast and FIRST, was Jumpin’ Jimmy Gorman. “Correcto Mundo”  Mister Jimmy!  Followed closely from all the way across the big pond was Larry in Munich. Close call Lar ol boy,  but maybe this week? AND, “Taking the Bronze” was our very own Crankin’ Curtis Stone!….”Way to go” to all three of you brilliant dudes!  Plus, there’s a Groovey Omnivore CD on it’s way to Jiminy Gorman!

  1. I believe Eric Clapton wrote “Tears in HEAVEN” in memory of his son Conor. He wrote “Wonderful Tonight” for Patty Boyd; his spouse at that time.
    I am pretty sure Eric’s nick name is SLOW HAND which of course he certainly is not….good name.

  2. Eric Clapton
    Nickname is “Slowhand”
    If you are referring to the song he wrote for his first wife, it was “Layla”
    Song he wrote for his son was “Tears in Heaven” after he died at the age of 4 in a tragic accident
    His wife’s name is Melia McEnery, however his first wife was Patti Boyd, George Harrison’s old flame.
    His son’s name was Conor

    • Hey Jules,
      WOW! Ya gotta love the rich irony in how FAST you answered a question ‘bout a guy called “Slowhand”

      • Hey Steve,
        Thanx, we were hoping someone would raise the unusual relationship between Clapton, Harrison and Pattie Boyd!
        “Something In the way she moves”….Indeed!
        Great to see you here once more!

      • Hey Steve,
        As usual you are absolutely correct! A quick check of certain dates makes it clear!
        George and Pattie were married in 1966 and remained man and wife until 1977! Once their divorce was finalized, Eric and Pattie married in 1979 and TO YOUR POINT, “Layla was released in November of 1970 ( Yes while George and Pattie were married) But here’s the Kicker, Geotge’s beautiful “Ode to Pattie” “Something” was released in late 1969 as well! Not a lot of gals can lay claim to those kinds of Stats!
