Eric Clapton was born in Surrey, England, 30 March 1945. One of the finest blues guitarists of his generation. Played awesome guitar with The Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers (possibly some of his greatest work), and Cream. Other bands included the short-lived Blind Faith and Derek and The Dominos, before going solo with great success. Clapton's nicknames are "Slowhand", and even "God". Is a great player, but "greatest on the planet"? I dunno, he may not even be the greatest in Surrey (Jeff Beck grew up not too far from Clapton). Anyway, its debatable, but who wants to talk about music when you can be enjoying it instead?
1. Eric Clapton is a great guitar player, but what on earth does Roger Waters (also a great artist in his own right) have to do with anything?

2. Buddy Guy doesnt believe that you HAVE to be black to play the blues, neither did BB, Freddie and Albert, or Muddy Waters, so who the hell am I to argue with them?

an absolutely amazing british blues guitarist born in ripley surrey england, and from a youn gage had picked up a guitar and went from that, listening to blues for hours upon end clapton learned from his idols such as muddy waters and robert johnson clapton started his first band at a young age, this band was the yardbirds, they had a pop following with the song for your love but clapton didnt feel right and soon left the yardbirds, he later joined john mayall and the blues breakers and enhanced his blues sound, from there he went to cream, by this point clapton had a large following of fans and his name was scrawled onto the wall of a london building saying clapton is god...from that point clapton left cream after a few years and went to blind faith a band that didnt last as long as cream or have as many records which broke up in 1970 , clapton then sponsored and played guitar for an england tour for delaney and bonnie, after that clapton tried a more low key band with derek and the dominoes derek being eric, this rouse didnt fool many people, claptons signature sound had been recognized, but while with the dominoes eric wrote his arguably most famous love song "layla" which critics originally hated due to its meaning (claptons love for george harrisons wife), after the dominoes ended clapton started his long solo career and played with many other artists off and on, and he continued to produce his hits through his solo career with songs like "let it grow" "wonderful tonight" which debued on the slowhand album "tears in heaven" which was made in honor of his son who had died falling off a balcony, and "cocaine" clapton suprised many in 91 when he played many acoustic versions of famous songs for the hit show "unplugged" among these songs were acoustic versions of "before you accuse me" "layla" and claptons instrumental "signe", through all these years clapton remains a steeple of blues music, and will always be remembered as one of the greatest guitarists of all time
eric clapton was ironically given the nickname slowhand for his blues artistry on the guitar

One of the greastest guitarists of all time, it was he who changed the guitar sound forever in 1966 when he was with John Maryall's Bluesbreakers album. Giving him the lable "God". He worked with John after leaving the Yardbirds who went into a pop direction while Eric stuck with his blues, launching his career in Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos, his solo work, and worked with numerous artist. In 1967 Jimi Hendrix stole the spot light from him.

By the way, what's with this crap on Roger Waters? He's a freaking bass player! They are both good at what they do.

Eric Clapton, is quite the white blues guitarist. And indeed, quite the former cokehead. He AND Roger Waters have diff. styles, so you needn't whine.
