Clinton Heylin:"Bob Dylan: Behind The Shades, a Biography"
No Reason To Cry brought together some heavyweights- Dylan and members of the Band- brought along their minor songs.
Eric Clapton, following Enoch Powell's "Rivers Of Blood" speech, at a 1976 gig in Birmingham: "Vote for Enoch Powell... I think Enoch's right, I think we should send them all back. Stop Britain from becoming a black colony. Get the foreigners out. Get the wogs out. Get the coons out. Keep Britain white." – thus single-handedly sparking the Rock Against Racism campaign. Clapton - who's made a career of playing blues music - has never detracted the comments, other than to say that he was drunk, and not racist, just anti-immigration.
