Eric Clapton:
"I just did some film music for a tv documentary about the beginning of the Second World War, because it's the fiftieth year of the Munich Agreement with Hitler and Chamberlain, and a Czechoslavakian company asked me to do the music and I was a bit lost when I first thought about it...And when I saw the footage , which is archive black and white material, I just wrote a very simple kind of blues progression and got some string players in and set it to a kind of philharmonic setting and it still works, which is an example of the fact that I always think from a blues point of view and try to frame it in different ways to make it palatable."
