Eric Clapton’s only #1 hit was “I shot the sheriff” - a song that wasn’t even his.
Fascinating, right!? There are actually a load of iconic artist who have had only one #1 hit, or no #1 hits at all. It’s awesome! Maybe I’ll start posting some examples.
I absolutely love the idea that what reaches the top (in any endeavor) rarely stands the test of time... and that reaching the top has never determined greatness. *Btw, Eric Clapton is an absolute scum bag human being... I can never mention Eric Clapton’s artistry without also mentioning that caveat... He only topped the charts at music once, but he topped the charts at being a scum bag lots!
