Clapton, born March 30, 1945, is an English guitarist and singer-songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist, and also as a member of The Yardbirds and Cream. Widely considered one of the most important and influential guitarists in history, he is ranked second behind Jimi Hendrix in Rolling Stone magazine’s 2011 “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” list.
Clapton earned the nickname “Slowhand” in the late 60’s during his collaborative work with blues artist John Mayall, before he went on to create the band Cream. He has received 17 Grammy Awards and a CBE from Buckingham Palace in 2004 for his contributions to music.
In 1998, Clapton, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, founded the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a medical and treatment facility for recovering substance abusers and other chemically dependent persons. Proceeds from his tour and Festivals are typically donated to support the center.
