The son of a soldier, Clapton grew up with his grandparents in Surrey, who encouraged his musical endeavours from an early
age. At 13 he received his first guitar and was eventually expelled from college - such was his dedication to mastering the
art of playing his instrument. After joining his first band The Roosters, the axeman received his big break in 1963 when he
was recruited to join The Yardbirds. Not content with being a member of one of the decade's most influential groups, he later
formed another one, Cream, with Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce and promptly conquered America.
Further endeavours such as Derek and the Dominos followed, but by the mid-'70s he was flying solo, relaunching himself
with a new look and sound. From that point, reinvention became his trademark, something that's continued through to the present
day. Having sold more than 30 million albums in the US - and been inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall Of Fame three times
- few can match the stature of this celebrated star.
With a back catalogue of peerless hits like 'Layla' and 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door', he's a live performer not to be missed.
