Eric Clapton History
Clapton was born in 1945 in Surrey, England. He grew up in a musical household and after falling in love with 'rock n roll' he asked for an electric guitar for his 13th birthday. He soon discarded it though because the strings hurt his hands but he picked it up again when he later went to Art College with peers who had an interest in similar music to him. Now in the right environment, he really took to the instrument and really began to follow his interest in blues guitar. He was invited to join the band, The Yardbirds and Cream but soon left because he grew tired of their commercial sound. He went on to have huge success both on his own and with other bands and millions buy Eric Clapton tickets every year.
Eric Clapton Success
Clapton's success as a guitarist was really cemented when he recorded the album, 'The Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton' with the blues band John Myall and The Bluesbreakers. Widely considered to be one of the best blues albums around, this album also inspired Clapton's nickname which refers to his amazing abilities on the guitar, 'God'. Clapton left this band, however, despite their success and went on to form Cream. This Rock trio went on to achieve superstar status after three widely acclaimed albums before breaking up, claiming that clashing egos was the cause. Never fear, though you can still buy Eric Clapton tickets and enjoy the amazing sound he makes with the guitar.
