Truth be told, when it comes to Lester Bangs – and I don’t think I’m alone here – I just can’t get enough. That’s why weathering through footage of Eric Clapton is worth it in this clip. That and the fact that he looks more like Richard Thompson (who would have been preferable) and is more tolerable when he’s high, which it looks like he is here. Ironically, this is the subject Lester hits on during his time on-screen. There has to be more video out there; footage that wouldn’t be taken down by WEA.
