Eric Clapton or Adele?

Who is a better musician, Eric Clapton, or Adele?

Update:

I'm on with Eric, I'm in a disagreement with my ignorant nimrod of a teenage sister.

Update 2:

The words of my sister were "Eric Clapton will never compare to Adele".

    Ummm.... Adele literally isn't even a musician. And everyone keeps saying that she has such a great voice, when on a technical level, she really doesn't. I've studied music theory sedulously, and Adele has a very limited contralto voice, while Clapton, an amazing guitarist who is not even known for his singing, can sing well in tenor, baritone, and mezzo-soprano. And Clapton writes all of his own songs because he is a guitarist, and most people don't realize that people who only sing and don't play instruments rarely ever write their songs. Adele may write her lyrics, but lyrics are infinitely simpler to write than music.

    How dare you compare such accomplished musician to that... that... that ugly whiner..!

    So wrong, man, so wrong... Not cool.

    Go get a preacher or somebody like that and confess your sin, dude!

    -Mr. Eric Clapton rules, and will rule forevermore.

    As far as this casual fan knows, Adele plays no instruments. That makes EC the winner by default.......and skill.
