Join us at Octavia Books with music historian Jason Kruppa presenting and signing ALL THINGS MUST PASS AWAY: Harrison, Clapton, and Other Assorted Love Songs.

George Harrison and Eric Clapton embarked upon a singular personal and creative friendship that impacted rock's unfolding future in resounding and far-reaching ways. ALL THINGS MUST PASS AWAY traces the emergence of their relationship from 1968 through the early 1970s.  Authors Womack and Kruppa devote close attention to the climax of Harrison and Clapton's shared musicianship—the November 1970 releases of All Things Must Pass, Harrison's powerful emancipatory statement in the wake of the Beatles, and Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, Clapton's impassioned reimagining of his art via Derek and the Dominos—two records that advanced rock 'n' roll from a windswept 1960s idealism into the edgy new reality of the 1970s. ALL THINGS MUST PASS AWAY will reveal Harrison and Clapton's relationship, especially the ways their musicianship and songwriting would eclipse rock music as an evolving genre.

Jason Kruppa, co-author with Kenneth Womack of ALL THINGS MUST PSS AWAY, is a music historian and creator of the Producing the Beatles podcast. He lives in New Orleans.
