The Yardbirds, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and The Dominoes. What is the similarity of these awesome blues and rock and roll bands? Most of the people may know the answer: Eric Clapton.
The bad guy, the God of the blues, the only musician who was inducted three times in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the guitarist, whose nickname is „slowhand”, starts his world wide concert tour in this year, 2013, to show their fans the psychedelic music, the blues, the sweaty concerts and the guilty joys.
Eric Clapton is a real veteran rocker. He was born in the United Kingdom in 1945. His life story is already from the start a strange one. His mother was pregnant when she was 16, and his father left them before Eric’s birth. He believed, his grandparents are his parents, and his mother is his sister. He found out the truth, when he was nine and his mother got married, moved to Canada and left her son. These things had very big influence to Eric’s whole life.
His interests to music and especially the blues, has started at his age 13, thankful for an acoustic guitar. He played in the Yardbirds between 1963 and 1965, in the John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers between 1965 and 1966, and after that, he joined in the Cream in 1966, but the group has broken up in 1968. Unfortunately one life haven’t got enough time to list the names of Eric Clapton’s bands before he has started his solo career. He is one of the bests guitar players of the World nowadays too, and he is better than most present musicians.
