Eric Patrick Clapton was born in 1945 in England and the guitar has never been the same. Easily one of the most influential guitarists ever Eric Clapton is the only musician to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times, as a solo performer and with Cream and the Yardbirds. Although he has had many battles with addiction he has continually put out great music from the Yardbirds to The Bluesbreakers, to Cream, Blind Faith, Derek And The Dominoes, to his long solo career. Clapton remains a vibrant ambassador for the guitar.
