The question is not whether "you can" wear shorts on stage, the question is whether you can "get away with it" . Clapton clearly can.

Exactly, why should he even care at this stage. I like that it makes him seem somewhat mortal!

As far as Angus, when you have 5 100 watt Marshall stacks on stage you can wear a sequined jock strap!

Dude! I was there. You are talking about June in Dallas. I wouldn't have blamed him for wearing speedos!

I think Clapton was trying to create a casual tone for the Crossroads festival to go along with his concept of it, besides also being comfortable in the heat of course.

I've always loved this picture. Yes, he's wearing shorts, but look at the rest of the outfit. This is not some blues slob wearing shorts, tie-dye, sneakers/flip flops and a baseball cap. :)

I think they should make dress shorts for business people,musicians, to wear during the summer with their suits,i'm sure they would be popular!

I've just never met people who care about this outside the realm of Planet TGP. It's one thing if you look like a slob and even then it is ok by me to dress how you feel. But a strict no shorts policy is just silly.

Photograph taken by the pool, at a decade long seasonal paying gig at a resort, at which the people doing the paying thought that was appropriate dress. With a bunch of hot cocktail waitresses in bikinis walking around.

I'm not making that up.

So you guys are saying that for everyone that isn't Eric Clapton, that it is "not" ok to wear shorts..?

Now maybe I know why no one wants me to gig with them! :eek: :huh :huh :dunno :dude
