I get off on electric guitars
Ahem...there are no electric guitars in this song (or at least no really prominent ones) and the song is so wimpy that calling it rock and roll would be a crime! If you're gonna sing the praises of rock, Eric, at least make your music match.

The entire song.
I heard the same as the above, except that the interview in which Clapton himself discussed the issue REALLY toned down the truth of it. Clapton said that he was merely peeved at how long his wife was taking to get ready. In other words, this interview was insincere, too. I'm making this additional listing because I'd like to address all the 'light rock' music stations who have played this song incessantly, making the song seem merely nauseating and insipid when it is really nauseating and ironic. The bottom line is that it's nauseating no matter what context it's in. I wish this song would be deleted from everyone's playlist, and I wish I could tear Mr. Clapton a new one for subjecting all of us to his excess bile (and subpar music).

The whole song!
It was a song written sarcastically while he waited for his then wife, Patti (Layla) to get ready for a party. They divorced a couple of weeks later.

This is a comment for the guy who posted this originaly. Layla was actualy written about George Harrison's wife. He named the song Layla because he was in love with her and he couldn't have her because if he tried, it would jepardise his friendship with Harrison.
