Well, Clapton's autobiography is very readable, but he comes across as very weak, self centred, selfish and almost cruel in his relationships with women. Not to mention promiscuous, alcoholic and a drug addict. I'm personally finding it a little difficult because I met him a couple of times (once with Pattie and once without) and he came across as sober, charming, generous and rather self-effacing. Of course I did know he'd been previously into drugs, but he seemed to be completely clean to me (though according to him he wasn't at the time when I met him). He also seemed to be very loving and caring with Pattie. So I've always had a good opinion of him (as opposed to some pop stars I have met. Julio Iglesias was a nightmare! Ringo was just plain odd) and it seems like he's describing someone completely different in his autobiography. Of course he gets cured eventually and resorts to being a much nicer person, but a bit evangelical. Anyway it's worth a read.
I've never heard of Virgil Flowers. Any good? I think I might start on the first of the Charlie Parker series by John Connolly next. I am saving the Lymond series for when I have a lot of time to read all 6 books in one go.
