This is an autobiography and Eric Clapton is a musician not a writer and it shows in the style of writingThe text is sometimes a bit clunky but I feel its written from the heartEC seems to have had it all fame and money at a very early age is not always a good combinationHis descent into alcohol and drug abuse has been well documented but in this book you feel like you are going down with him its a no holds barred kind of feelingHe writes from the heart about losing his son and meeting his wife Melia and his feelings on becoming a father to three girlsIts an interesting book not terribly in depth at times but it does show that when ghost writers write autobiographies they tend to use a lot of fill to make the book longer maybe or to dramatise certain events there s none of that in this book its very down to earthI wish Eric well he s been part of my own life for a very long time and given a lot of pleasure through his music and guitar playing and I hope that although he s now 72 with very young daughters he lives a long and happy life and sees them grow up without any of the problems he himself experiencedThanks for the insight Eric Berlin Calling years at the forefront of his profession he has twice survived near fatal addictions to drugs and alcohol the death of his four Crimson Desert year old son the deaths of friends such as Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon the break up of marriage and the disintegration of relationships with a succession of beautiful women These are the memoirs of a survivor someone who has reached the pinnacle of success who has had it all but whose demons have never left him At the age of 62 Eric is now ready to tell his story as it is hiding nothing with a directness and searing honesty that will make this book one of the most compelling memoirs of our timeE.

I ve been an E C fan for years He and I were born a couple of months apart I love the Blues and have been playing since I was about tenWas looking forward to getting to know the man but about half way through the same word kept coming into my mind selfish The book had one paragraph about the Beano album and the last third seemed a bit hurried Most of it was devoted to the dark years and I feel that it went over the same ground again and again And then I found out that he loves shooting and fishing both of my pet hates So all in all a disappointment for me perhaps not for others Joe Pass Guitar Chords years at the forefront of his profession he has twice survived near fatal addictions to drugs and alcohol the death of his four Desperately Seeking Someone Life Goes On Desperately Seeking Someone #2 year old son the deaths of friends such as Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon the break up of marriage and the disintegration of relationships with a succession of beautiful women These are the memoirs of a survivor someone who has reached the pinnacle of success who has had it all but whose demons have never left him At the age of 62 Eric is now ready to tell his story as it is hiding nothing with a directness and searing honesty that will make this book one of the most compelling memoirs of our tim.

I m a lifelong Eric Clapton fan though I can t say I like everything he puts out I am familiar with all stages of his musical career but prior to reading his 2007 autobiography entitled Clapton I knew very little about his personal life other than disjointed anecdotes here and there In this book the guitarist extraordinaire offers a candid look back at his roller coaster life Overall it s a pretty satisfying tour through about a half century of rock and roll history I may not always have enjoyed the ride that Clapton took me on but I was always thoroughly engaged by itPerhaps the defining moment in Clapton s life is his much discussed romance with George Harrison s wife Patti Boyd the inspiration for the Layla album and other songs in Clapton s body of work That particular episode proves not to be uite as romantic as the music that was composed around it Here Clapton admits that as soon as he won Boyd s love he began cheating on her In fact Clapton treats a lot of women like dirt in this book and delves pretty deeply into the psychological hows and whys of it all To his credit however unlike Pete Townshend in his autobiography Who I Am Clapton doesn t ask you to forgive him beg you to like him or expect you to admire his exploits He simply relates everything in a matter of fact way as if to say these are some bad things I ve done and there s nothing I can do about them nowClapton is eually candid about his substance abuse and his story of recovery is inspiring One can t help but admire the way he eventually turned his life around Yet the book is frustrating because for most of its length he is still very much an emotional child He doesn t really get his act together until his mid 50s when he marries a woman 30 years his junior At that point you re happy for him but the book also starts to get boring as Clapton becomes your grandpa talking about computer culture owning a laptop shopping for shoes in Japan and the necessity of taking a nap every afternoonAs revealing and cathartic as all the talk about his drug use and alcoholism may be the reader is left wishing Clapton had devoted ink to his music He covers Blind Faith Cream and Derek and the Dominos pretty well but glosses over much of his solo career He left the Yardbirds because their music was too poppy and not true to the blues but he doesn t feel the need to justify his later forays into easy listening smooth jazz and Luther Vandross style R B Some of his greatest albums like Slowhand he dismisses as sloppy drunken playing His own personal favorite is Pilgrim an album which critics freuently cite as one of his all time worstA really good rock and roll biography will make me want to go back and dig out that artist s old albums thereby reliving some of his or her glory days This book didn t do that for me As much as I love his guitar playing I d have to say my respect for the man diminished a bit after reading his life story Not only were some of his moral choices off putting but he just doesn t come across as intelligent as you might expect a virtuoso musician to be I m not here to criticize Clapton s life however but rather to review his book There s no denying that Clapton the book is well written and covers a lot of what you d want to know about the man It isn t always fun or exciting but it s consistently informative surprisingly candid and provides a great deal of insight into the man behind the music
