Eric Clapton

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is an English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer.

He is "probably most famous for his mastery of the Stratocaster guitar".

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Yardbirds, of Cream, and as a solo performer.

Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has remained rooted in the blues.

Despite this focus he is credited as an innovator in a wide variety of genres, including blues-rock and psychedelic rock Clapton's chart success was also not limited to the blues, with chart-toppers in Delta blues, pop and reggae .

One of his most successful recordings was the hit love song "Layla", which he played with the band Derek and the Dominos.
