Eric Clapton says it was David Bowie who gave him the title of his new album, Old Sock.

Clapton was watching the news in England in January when they did a story on Bowie’s new song, “Where are We Now” — which he loves, saying it gives him “cold chills.” He then said he had his office send Bowie a note, to which Bowie responded, “Thanks for the shout out, old sock. Really appreciate it.” Clapton was going to name the album 50 Years Adrift in an Open Tuning, which would have been a tip of the hat to the memoir of the late Beatles press agent, Derek Taylor, who called his, 50 Years Adrift in an Open Shirt.
