From busking on street corners and playing local pubs, the raw blues of the Yardbirds, the rock/blues of Cream, the brilliance of Derek and Dominoes to his own solo career, Eric Clapton is recognised as a rock god.

So much has already been written about him and while we think we know it all already, he still seems partly shrouded in mystery. Some stories and facts about his life and work seem to change and evolve, which all adds more  to his mystique.

This book aims to uncover some of those mysteries and celebrate his unique style. It’s not written as a traditional biography. Instead it’s split into different areas of his career - in effect it’s a number of mini-biographies.

The FAQs involve those who paved the way for Clapton, various bands and musicians he’s worked with and a solo career that spans four decades. Packed with dozens of rare images, fans will find much to enjoy this celebration on Clapton’s incomparable career.
