Eric Clapton - Happy 60th birthday


Recommended Posts

Cheers to the Slowhand!

Eric Clapton was born on March 30, 1945, in England. Clapton's musical career has developed from band member to solo artist and has allowed Clapton to be considered one of the premiere rock and blues guitarists in history. Clapton was raised by his grandmother who he thought was his mother until age 9 when he learned that his "sister" was actually is mom and he was an illegitimate child. By the time Clapton was 15, he was fascinated with the blues and playing guitar (a gift for his 13th birthday) and by age 17, he had dropped out of Kingston College of Art to focus on a career in music in London.

I'll cheers to that!

I saw him on his Blues tour (10 yrs ago?) at Maple Leaf Gardens, and Jimmy Vaughen opened for him - then they jammed at the end.

One night I'll never forget.
