Generally considered one of the greatest guitarists who ever walked the earth, and perhaps the greatest blues musician ever NOT born in America. For many years Clapton's work has been universally lauded by musicians and music fans as some of the best of its kind. Though as younger audiences have recently taken to denigrating his musicianship, they'd do well to note that the popular assessment of him is based mostly on the following:

1. His work with Derek and the Dominos
2. The Bluesbreakers
3. Cream
4. All his live performances
5. All other studio works (Blind Faith, The Yardbirds From the Cradle, ect.)

We'd probably all be saying Eric was the best guitarist ever if not for you-know-who.
"Wow, that Eric Clapton sure can play guitar. Too bad he's a complete sellout after the cellphone commercial."

"Yeah, I'll stick with Steve Vai. He might be tasteless and showy, but he doesn't prostitute himself. Not that anyone would pay to have sex with him, as he looks like a goblin, but you know."

Very influential guitar player that played with some of the best groups of all time (Cream, Derek and the Dominoes, The Yardbirds, etc...) Also influenced Hendrix who for some reason became more influential but sucked at playing the guitar when it came to technicality and ability.
JIMI IS WAY TO OVERATED LISTEN TO OTHER GUITARIST AND YOU WILL REALIZE JUST HOW MUCH HE IS PWNED BY THEM. And I don't mean any of that punk or nu-metal crap i mean the Soloist.

Guitar player who has gone from being called "God" by playing a bastardized form of the blues in garage bands (Yardbirds) and psychedelic hippie bands (Cream, Blues Breakers, Blind Faith, Derek and the Domino's), to a solo artist using the same ploy of playing the white man blues. Since his hey day in the mid 70s, he's cautiously made albums that cater to his fans, never venturing too far from his middle of the road style blues and mid tempo rock he started playing in the 70s. His fan base is primarily white guys who claim to like the blues, but only if played by 'guitar heroes' and would never venture to the south side of Chicago, or stray from Beale St in Memphis. They like their blues done beer commercial style.

Its questionable if any of his material from the last 25 years has any relevance musically, with the exception of "Tears In Heaven", a quiet, heartfelt song about the death of his toddler son. So called "die hard Clapton fans" hate this song of course, becuase it introduced Clapton to a middle of the road audience and was a big hit, oh, and because "it didn't rock, dude".
Frat boy in 1978, "Eric Clapton is the best blues player there is, man."
