Eric Clapton

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE, is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. Clapton has been referred to as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. Clapton ranked second in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and fourth in Gibson's "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time" He was also named number five in Time magazine's list of "The 10 Best Electric Guitar Players" in 2009.

In the mid-1960s Clapton left the Yardbirds to play with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. Immediately after leaving Mayall, Clapton formed the power trio Cream with drummer Ginger Baker and bassist Jack Bruce, in which Clapton played sustained blues improvisations and "arty, blues-based psychedelic pop".(5) Furthermore, he formed blues rock band Blind Faith with Baker, Steve Winwood, and Ric Grech. For most of the 1970s Clapton's output bore the influence of the mellow style of J. J. Cale and the reggae of Bob Marley. His version of Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" helped reggae reach a mass market.(6) Two of his most popular recordings were "Layla", recorded with Derek and the Dominos; and Robert Johnson's "Crossroads", recorded with Cream. Following the death of his son Conor in 1991, Clapton's grief was expressed in the song "Tears in Heaven", which was featured on his Unplugged album.

Clapton has been the recipient of 18 Grammy Awards, and the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. In 2004 he was awarded a CBE at Buckingham Palace for services to music.(7)(8)(9) In 1998, Clapton, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, founded the Crossroads Centre on Antigua, a medical facility for recovering substance abusers

Eric Clapton : Eric Clapton - Clapton

Eric Clapton says this about his 2010 release: This album wasn't what it was intended to be at all. It's actually better than it was meant to be because, in a way, I just let it happen. It's an eclectic collection of songs that weren't really on the map - and I like it so much because if it's a surprise to the fans, that's only because it's a surprise to me, as well. It features 14 tracks of blues, standards, and a few new originals, including: Autumn Leaves - Diamonds Made from Rain - Judgement Day - How Deep Is the Ocean - My Very Good Friend the Milkman - River Runs Deep - Rockin' Chair - That's No Way to Get Along - Travelin' Alone - and more.

Songlist: That's No Way To Get Along, My Very Good Friend, The Milkman, Rockin' Chair, Autumn Leaves, Can't Hold Out Much Longer, Judgement Day, Everything Will Be Alright, When Somebody Thinks You're Wonderful, River Runs Deep, Travelin' Alone, Diamonds Made From Rain, Run Back To Your Side, Hard Times Blues, How Deep Is The Ocean (How High Is The Sky)
