“CLAPTON IS GOD”
With these words graffiti-ed across London, Eric Clapton became the ultimate guitar hero. He is the only ever three-time-inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an 18-time Grammy Award winner, and widely renowned as one of the greatest performers of all time.

But behind the scenes lay restlessness and tragedy. The insatiable search to grow his artistic voice left fans surprised as he constantly quit successful bands, from the ground-breaking Yardbirds to 60’s super-group Cream. His isolated pursuit of his craft and fear of selling out served as a catalyst for his evolution as an artist. Stretching from his traumatic childhood living in a “house of secrets”, to his long and difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol and the tragic loss of his son in a heart-breaking accident, Eric Clapton always found an inner strength and healing in music.
