Eric Clapton reportedly cut short a trip to Ku?adas? on the Turkish coast yesterday to return to London after learning his dog had died. EC, who risked his life to save several of his guitars as his London home burned in 1996, felt compelled enough to cancel plans he had arranged to visit a number of historic sites along the Turkish coast to summon a private plane so he could return immediately to London. As dog lovers, we'd do the same if we had the means. Condolences to Eric on the loss of his furry companion.
