Did Jimi Kill Eric Clapton?

Did Jimi “Kill” Clapton?

Who shows up to a Cream concert and request to jam with Eric Clapton? NO ONE… unless of course you’re Jimi Hendrix– and that is exactly what he did.

At a time when Cream was at the top of the food chain, they were untouchable. Clapton was a mere mortal among his peers. A Rock God if you will…

Jimi plugged in and blew the entire band away. He ended up playing a song (Killing Floor), that even Clapton had expressed he had not been a fan of playing because of it’s difficulty. Jimi played his bum off, and owned the entire song. He had played with his teeth, behind his head- Jimi had quickly become a force to be reckoned with.

He had come on stage, and cutoff Clapton. CUT OFF, CLAPTON. Who was this kid? Did Jimi kill Clapton, or was he simply honoring one of his idols? You be the judge.

 

Killing Floor Lyrics Below

I shoulda quit you, a long time ago,
I shoulda quit you, baby, a long time ago,
I shoulda quit you pretty baby, and went on to Mexico.
If I had’a followed, my right mind,
If I had’a followed, my right mind,
I’da been on the border, my second time.

If I had’a went on, when my best friend come at me,
If I had’a went on, when my best friend come at me,
Lord, I wouldn’t be here tonight, down on the killin’ floor.

If I had’a went on, when my friend come at me,
If I had’a went on, when my best friend come at me,
I wouldn’t be here tonight, down on the killin’ floor.

God knows, I shoulda went on,
God knows, I shoulda went on,
And I wouldn’t be here tonight, down on the killin’ floor.
