    So Clapton should have jumped out the window after him? In other breaking news, artists use art to express their feelings.

    iscariot40, they also use art to make money.

    I think that`s what Banksy is trying to say.

    Bank-sy. get it?

    He makes dark humour graffiti since he started so i`m not surprised that he`s using public figures to get his point across.

    Oh nasty! Really mean actually.
    Eric wasn`t AT the apartment when his son died. He was seperated from the mother, who was napping with her boyfriend when it happened.

    Eric lived 3 blocks away, so he could visit his son often.

    They crusaded to get the window-style that led to their son`s death outlawed and replaced! Preventing further tragedies.

    What`s the name of that Eric Clapton song about the death of his son... the one that won six Grammy Awards?

    And for those who think this message is a direct attack towards Clapton go jump off a bridge. It`s a political statement about how it`s easy to make money off totaly f***d up situation like the death of your own son.

    @Groogle. The name of the song you`re asking about is Tears in Heaven.

    He`s a frelling musician! Of course he expressed his grief through a song. Whoever did this has a special place in hell waiting for them. As a father that had his newborn son die in his arms an hour after being born, I find this totally disgusting. I suppose I`m a douche for dedicating "Wish You Were Here" to my son at my gig that night.

    This guy, whoever the drat he is, can go get drated.

    Seriously.

    If he still has to push to take a dump, this guy has not gone and drated himself to an adequate degree.

    Trying to make a comment about how easy it is to get publicity, when you`re getting your publicity from someone ELSE`s tragedy? No drat him, drat him 1000 times over.

    @ Groogle: This is clearly a jab at Eric Clapton. I think you have poor reading comprehension or maybe you need a pair of the new Harry Potter glasses.

    It`s true though, isn`t it? I mean yeah Eric Clapton is a fantastic guitarist and an inspirational guy, but this statement is bitingly honest. Perhaps it was supposed to cause offense, amongst both religious people and music elitists.

    I agree with what Baalthazaq is saying however, it`s very hypocritical to slate someone for seeking publicity by creating something intended to get publicity.

    It`s not even close to true, a sad and rather pathetic mural, the person who created it ought to be embarrassed.

    That`s unlikely though, anyone who can think up crap like that and consider it art or `provocative` art, is unlikely to understand what exactly is being said and just how stupid it is.

    Thanks @swaywithme! I say a lenghty interview with Eric, he talked openly about a LOT of personal stuff! It really broke my heart to listen to him talk about walking 3 blocks to see his dead son that day, awful!

    BUT! They did get ALL of those dangerous window units replaced (his wasn`t the first tragic fall) and banned outright.

    Tears In Heaven

    WATCH THIS!

    It`s not the interview I saw, BUT at 3:27 is the image used here, minus the hateful comment! idk when that image origionated, but it is NOT created by... whomever did this!

    To be clear:

    Eric Clapton was NOT in the apartment when his son Conner died.

    Wiki Link it`s in the first line.

    So this `person` who made this is a ghoul who feasts on the bodies of dead children. If I meet this person in real life I`d beat them to a pulp!

    "I like that everyone is defending Clapton here, but no one is defending God."

    and why in the world would we want to do that?

    who is this god guy? and why is he related to clapton?

    Banksy has always been dark. Every piece he does has a sense of mystery about it and a sad meaning.

    Why the f--- does everyone immediately think that if there`s some kind of piece that`s made with a stencil, it`s automatically a Banksy. Seriously, people need to learn before they post.
