If Eric Clapton had decided to lie down his guitar and never play another note, his legendary stature in the history of popular music would still be secure. At the ripe old age of 23, he had lit the pop music world on fire with the Bluesbreakers and had finished playing with the first supergroup, Cream. The grueling pace of the Cream touring and recording had left him burnt out, and by the end of 1968, Eric Clapton was ready for a change. His tenure in the short-lived Blind Faith would lead into a sideman’s spot in the Delaney & Bonnie group, then his first solo album and then into his masterpiece, Derek and Dominos’ Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, which also featured Duane Allman.
British guitarist and singer-songwriter Eric Clapton has released 24 studio albums, 26 singles, 18 compilations, 14 live albums and six soundtrack albums as a solo artist and scores of collaborations on records with other artists.
