“I don’t want you here, in the room or in my country,” Clapton declared. “Listen to me, man! I think we should vote for Enoch Powell. Enoch’s our man.

Clapton’s bizarre outburst, which helped spur the Rock Against Racism movement, saw him labeled a racist for many years, and he has subsequently apologized many times, blaming his addiction to drink and drugs for the outburst.

The musician reveals in the film that he would drink a bottle of cognac by midday, before snorting cocaine from a knife at lunch.

He said: “I was so ashamed of who I was, a kind of semi-racist, which didn’t make sense. Half of my friends were black, I dated a black woman and I championed black music.”

Clapton believes that much of his addiction can be traced to the fact that he was brought up believing his grandparents were his parents and his mother was his sister. When he discovered the truth, his mother rejected him.

The film also covers the 1991 death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from the 53rd floor of a New York apartment block.

Clapton says the tragedy helped him get sober, and to exist from that point on “to honor the memory of my son.”

He also discusses his romance with Pattie Boyd, whom he fell in love with when she was married to George Harrison.

“I knew it was wrong, George was my best friend,” he says, “But I felt the compulsion towards her. She was the most incredible woman I had ever met. Even though they were married I wanted her, even though she was unavailable.”

Clapton married Pattie in 1979 but they split nine years later.

Clapton—who is a three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, once as a solo artist and as a member of The Yardbirds and also Cream—added: “There is no doubt. I went into a cave of self-pity and despair and the only thing that was the light at the end of the tunnel was this music.”
