Eric Clapton Information
"Clapton is God". This was the statement that repeatedly popped up in graffiti messages in the late 1960's, throughout London and the U.S. It's a bold statement that is sometimes hard to argue with. Eric Clapton is the only musician to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on three seperate occassions. Once as a member of the Yardbirds, once as a member of Cream and finally as an individual artist.
Throughout his extended career, Eric Clapton has covered many musical genres, but his style and sound was always rooted in the blues. This Blues style was particularly evident in Clapton's stints with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds. His work with Cream showed his versatility as a Hard Rock performer as well. Clapton is set to team up with guitarist Jeff Beck for a string of 2010 Northern American shows in February following their appearance at the O2 Arena in London.
