About finding confidence and peace of mind as you face challenges.
First single from Reptile. A childhood friend of Clapton's used to call him "reptile," giving him the idea to use it as the title.

Actually it was Doyle Bramhall II and his wife - Susannah Melvoin who wrote this song for Mr. Clapton. DB II is a famous texas guitarist (he is left-handed, but plays on guitar which is strung normally, so the bass strings are down!). DB II is a son of DB, who has played on drums with Stevie Ray Vaughan. DB II played on Roger Waters (post - Pink Floyd) live album: "In the flesh", and Clapton's albums: Reptile, Sessions for Robert J., Road to Escondido. He toured with Mr. Clapton in 2006/7. Now he is a second guitarist in Mr. Clapton's band!!

Doyle Bramhall is now part of Clapton's band. He's very talented. Also plays backwards, which i find facinating.

Before someone makes a stink, i do mean backwards. I'm aware he's left handed, but he also strings backwards, with the lowest strings at the bottom instead of top.
