From the best-selling author of Shout! and the definitive lives of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Buddy Holly and Mick Jagger, comes a new biography of Eric Clapton.
For half a century Eric Clapton has been acknowledged to be one of rock music’s greatest virtuosos, the unrivalled master of its indispensable tool, the solid-body electric guitar. His career has spanned the history of rock, and often shaped it via the seminal bands with whom he’s played: the Yardbirds, John Mavall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominoes.
Now his remarkable life story is told by rock music’s foremost biographer, Philip Norman in Slowhand: The Life and Music of Eric Clapton. Written with Clapton’s consent and access to family members and close friends, the 432-page biography is packed with new information and critical insights revealing the complex character behind the legend.
It will be published October 30th in the US and November 6th in the UK.
