Read full description of the books:
Honest look at life of a musician.
I must have been the only person in the world who was not aware of the fact that Eric Clapton spent most of his life as either drug or alcohol addict. Very celebrated and highly respected addict, but addict nevertheless. It takes a big chunk of this book and his life up to the point where boozing, drugging and vomiting becomes tedious and repetitive - it is a lifestyle expected from a rock star and he basically played the part but you don't get a sense that he matured with age because everything was lost in a fog of continuous dope, alcohol and what not. Thankfully, somewhere in his middle age he seems to start collecting pieces and reflect at his life - he talks about the ways he pulled himself out of it, of healing power of the music and how it took him a long time to accept that alcoholism is not a moral degeneration but a disease and should be treated as such.

He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries, garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
