Happy Birthday Eric Clapton!


Eric Clapton was born this day in 1945 in Ripley, Surrey, England.  Few artists can truly live up to the title "legendary" but it's impossible to not attach that title to Clapton's name.  His time in The Yardbirds, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Blind Faith, Cream, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, Derek & The Dominos and his extensive solo career have had an influence that few (if any) have achieved.  He's also the only artist to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 3 times...as a solo artist, a member of The Yardbirds and with Cream.  Enjoy a small sampling of his brilliant career:

The Yardbirds- "I Wish You Would"

Cream- "Strange Brew"

Derek & The Dominos- "It's Too Late" (on The Johnny Cash Show)

"After Midnight" (with Steve Winwood)

"Bell Bottom Blues"

"Tears In Heaven"

"Layla"
