Eric Clapton

Ripton, Surrey - United Kingdom


At his peak, Eric Clapton CBE was nicknamed 'God' by his fans, an indication of how highly regarded the guitarist was during his glory days. He didn't like this but it became a pivotal part of his story and an instrumental moment in the rise of the guitar hero, a rock & roll cliché that didn't exist before him. He ranked second in Rolling Stone's '100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time'.
