Eric Clapton, also known as Slowhand, is a rock and roll pioneer whose legacy is carved into the annals of history. A pivotal figure in the proliferation of rock and roll, the English guitarist was involved in some of the most influential bands of all time before pursuing a lucrative solo career of his own.

Eric Clapton’s influence on music can be dated back to the 1960s, a time when he was the foremost guitarist in a bustling London alternative music scene. It was during this time that he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, and with his band Cream, alongside Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, he pioneered psychedelic rock, inspiring generations in the process.

Whilst he has long been one of rock’s most controversial figures, an opinionated character who has made more than questionable comments over the years, one cannot doubt the quality of his wailing guitar-playing style. It took from the American bluesmen of old, and augmented it, turning up the volume, and hastening the pace, helping to set the scene for the many different shredders we’ve had in the years since the ’60s. Without Clapton’s work, we could say goodbye to everyone from Kirk Hammett to Mike McCready, a dazzling feat.
