Clapton Clothing Up In Smoke

A fashionable men's clothing store that Eric Clapton has a 50% ownership in suffered a fire that reportedly destroyed the shop's entire Christmas inventory. Cordings, a Piccadilly fixture for 170 years, lost more than $325,000 in clothing Thursday (12/17) due to smoke and water damage resulting from the fire, which apparently started when water leaking in the shop's basement got into electrical equipment.  Clapton, whose interest in the store goes beyond being an investor, said 'I want to assure customers that it will be business as normal come tomorrow'.  EC had a close call in 1996 when he escaped a fire in his London home, managing to save several guitars.
