Hi just reminding you that you are/were winner 3 of the giveaway I did and I haven't been able to mail out any of the winnings yet, I sent a message about not being able to do that a while ago and I never got a response from you. Would you still like the things you won?

That’d be great, yes I would love them. Sorry I’ve been away recently so I haven’t been able to check my messages

We met secretly at a flat in South Kensington. Eric Clapton had asked me to come because he wanted me to listen to a new number he had written.

He switched on the tape machine, turned up the volume and played me the most powerful, moving song I had ever heard. It was Layla, about a man who falls hopelessly in love with a woman who loves him but is unavailable.

He played it to me two or three times, all the while watching my face intently for my reaction. My first thought was: ‘Oh God, everyone’s going to know this is about me.
