Agree. I tried so many forms of "blue coast" "coast of blue" "azure coast" "coast of azure", etc. Also, not sure why "maggot" doesn't work (for the fly question, obviously).

He's a much better guitar player than Lennon, Harrison, or Townshend. Whether Clapton considered giving up has no bearing on his actual skill, which was and is superior to most.
