When Eric Clapton was in New York City not too long ago, he stopped by the Guitar Center’s Manhattan store for an interview with the retailer’s online blog. He also reunited that day with his beloved Fender Stratocaster, Blackie, which was purchased by the Guitar Center in 2004 at Eric’s second guitar auction. The auction raised funds for Crossroads Centre Antigua (an alcohol and drug treatment centre) founded by Clapton in 1997. In the interview EC dishes on Stratocasters, Les Pauls, 335s, Blackie, and the upcoming Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago. Check out the photos and read the article At: Guitar Center.
