Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton

The master guitarist known as EC or Slowhand (which originated back in the 60s, when his studied pace in changing broken strings drew forth the ironic nickname) has a vast catalogue dripping with highlights. From his teenage work with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers through Cream, Blind Faith (Steve Winwood), Derek & The Dominoes, and many collaborations (the albums with JJ Cale and BB King are two fine examples) Clapton has repeatedly demonstrated the skills raising him to the upper echelons of the rock pantheon. Those who know his solo albums (Unplugged and Journeyman spring to mind) know he is also a fine singer and excellent songwriter. EC: a lifetime in music that can be explored over decades of listening.
