World-renowned singer/songwriter and epic guitar player Eric Clapton has won 18 Grammy Awards and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times. This is his incredible story.
Eric Clapton is one of the greatest guitarists--ever. His five-decade-long career includes time with the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, the Plastic Ono Band, Delaney & Bonnie, Derek and the Dominos, and his own solo work, as well as participation in Crossroads festivals and appearances at the Concert for Bangladesh, the Last Waltz, Live Aid, and the Secret Policeman's Other Ball.
Along the way, he has won seven Grammy Awards and has had eighteen gold, eight platinum, and seven multi-platinum albums--including a ten-times platinum LP. And he's the only musician to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame "three" times--as a solo performer and as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream.
From respected author and rock journalist Chris Welch, "Clapton: The Ultimate Illustrated History" is a beautifully illustrated celebration of all things Clapton. Packed with more than 400 photographs, guitars, concert posters, and other memorabilia, this first-of-its-kind book follows Clapton's remarkable career--from his earliest days with several now-legendary bands to his stunning solo career. Also included is a wealth of sidebars covering the gear Clapton has used through the years, as well as extensive appendices detailing his complete discography.
