Five years ago Eric Clayton’s life was in turmoil. What’s new, right? Ever since he formed Saviour Machine in 1989, in sunny California, with his brother Jeff, it seems much of his artistic career and his private life has been cursed rather than blessed. The story’s about banishment, mismanagement and business relationships gone sour are legion. The man even felt the need to write a book about it cause it was impossible to explain everything anymore in an interview. And yes. There’s also the stories about some album that remains unfinished.
