READ

Wikipedia : This day (March 30, 1945), in Ripley, Surrey (UK), is born Eric Clapton, an English guitarist, singer and member of The Yardbirds and Cream.

Official Site : Eric was raised in a musical household. His grandmother played piano and his uncle and mother both enjoyed listening to the sounds of the big bands. Pat later told Eric’s official biographer, Ray Coleman, that his father was a gifted musician, playing piano in several dance bands in the Surrey area.

The Unofficial Website : Clapton withdrew from the spotlight in the early seventies, wallowing in his addiction and then struggling to conquer it. Following the advice of the Who’s Pete Townsend, he underwent a controversial but effective electro-acupuncture treatment and was fully rehabilitated.

@last.fm : Clapton’s musical style has undergone multiple changes during his career, but has always remained rooted in the blues.
