Do you still live in Venice Beach?

SalDec 26, 2013

I met Eric Clapton and Geraldine Edwards in 2003, in San Diego, my hometown. I was at Mr. A's, and saw Eric Clapton entering with a beautiful woman. I approached him for an autograph, which he gave me, and he introduced me to Geraldine Edwards at that time. It was exciting, something that will stay with me. You don't meet a celebrity every day. Both Clapton and Edwards were very cordial and friendly. They seemed like nice people.

I remember staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1978 and meeting Eric Clapton and Geraldine Edwards while there. They were staying next door to me and I ran into them while exiting my room while they were entering theirs. They were hoping people would not discover them there, and they told me not to tell anyone about seeing them there. I agreed to keep their secret. Later, the press caught on that Eric Clapton was in the Hotel with his girlfriend, and Eric and Geraldine had to be rolled out of the Hotel hidden in laundry carts towards the delivery exit. The limo was waiting for them out back. Eric was married to Pattie at the time and neither of them wanted any bad press. I later read that Geraldine Edwards was the woman that Almost Famous was written about. Too bad they could not have put that scene in the film.

Paul PrudhommeJan 26, 2011

Geraldine Edwards dated Eric Clapton on and off from 1978 to 2003. She is the woman that Almost Famous is written about. She got married in 2006. Patti Boyd was Patti Clapton, Eric's wife and the ex-wife of George Harrison. I saw a picture of Geraldine Edwards with Eric Clapton and she looked quite a bit like Patti Clapton. Especially her eyes. Clapton is one lucky man.
