For Pete's sake, just let the man do his laundry.

Why would he use a laundromat? Doesn't he have a house in LA?

You sure that's him?

How very very sad. I knew that he was forced to sell his precious guitars recently, and now this.

*** Wow. Just WOW. Has he hit skid row? Why a public laundromat? Why not drop it off to be taken care of? Why doesn't he own his own washing machine and dryer at his home? This is very seriously WEIRD. Do we need to take up a collection to help Eric Clapton get his own washing machine and dryer from Craigslist? ***

I have seen him at the grocery store in the line next to me. It took me a second to figure out it was him. I think its cool. Odd but cool.

Little things like laundry, coffee, getting cigarettes probably make celebrities feel human. If you really want to go down this road then why do celebrities even drive cars...they could hire a driver to run them around town for a couple of hundred bucks a day. Pittance to many stars.

Sometimes its nice just to get out of the house and run a silly errand. My guess here is that - he had to some laundry. Maybe his pets soiled some sheets so he had to go to a public laundromat. I dunno, when my pets soil I like to use industrial laundry machines.

There's only so much sunbathing and yachting and partying with people you never talk to again a guy can do in his rocker lifetime, before the little things that ground you, and remind you of life you had before the insta-glamour facade of extreme wealth and fame become important. Washing your own clothes, running to the post office to grab some stamps, barbecuing for a few REAL friends, or baking some cookies and swinging by the lame school fundraiser...it's important that life not become a meaningless sequence of fleeting events that don't leave an lasting impact on anyone. Besides, sometimes some hot, easy-target broke bitches hang out at the laundry mat--give a playa' some credit!

There's a major auction of his guitars and amps next week to raise funds for the Crossroads center.

You can bid online.

Are You Serious    

The reasons celebrities are such screwed up losers is because people cannot just let them be. If he wants to do his laundry in a laundry mat, who the hell cares ? Let him just be. I feel sorry for celebs who can't do anything or go anywhere......look at MJ, I think it was why he spiraled until he was dead. Can't get out of the car, go to the store, wash my clothes without a camera up my ass ? I'd go crazy, too........think about it before you judge.....
