EC was known in the '60's as the best white Blues guitarist bar none.
In fact in England they called him God...would graffiti it all over the place.
I have always liked the song but now that my boyfriend has passed away I just cant pull myself away from this song. I think that Clapton i one of the 3 great guitarists. Clapton has the best style with the guitar, he is truly a blues guitarist.
He quit the Yardbirds over creative differences, supposedly and went to play with John Mayall in the Bluesbreakers. From there he played with Cream for 3 or 4 years, then he played in Blind Faith with Stevie Winwood.
He lost his son Conor to a terrible accident around that same time.
And yes, some of his stuff is among my favorite, especially c. The Feb 2008 interviews at Illuminati-News with ECs long time love Debra Hunter Pitts states: Famous people were involved in this Militia Group, such celebrities as Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana whom she has kids, and they had support from people in Hollywood as well.
He played in Derek and the Dominos, early 70's with the legendary slide guitarist Duane Allman. Since then he's mainly headed his own bands with various musicians.
In 1994 he put out "From the Cradle", an excellent record of all-Blues covers, and toured in support.After that period in time, his sound and style of music started to change.
