View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Eric Clapton is today probably the greatest living blues guitarist and the most enigmatic. The product of a broken home in wartime Britain, Eric was raised by his grandmother, Rose, who encouraged his early love of music. Drifting through a succession of local groups, the young Clapton first became successful in the legendary Yardbirds, later joining John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and then Cream before moving, in the late sixties, to the short-lived super-group, Blind Faith, and on, in the seventies, to a stunning solo career. Never content to rest on his laurels, Clapton has continued to develop his talent, working with The Beatles, Delaney and Bonnie, Pete Townshend, Sting, and many other top performers. A string of broken love affairs, years of dependency on drugs and alcohol and the tragic death of his son, Conor, have caused Eric Clapton truly to live the blues.
