A loner by nature, virtuoso guitarist and rock legend Eric Clapton took refuge in the blues as a teenager growing up in post-war Britain. This bestselling memoir shows how his own emotional ups and downs were well suited to the tortured temperament of the music. Rejected by his mother, and an outcast until he became a musician, Clapton's life has been anything but an easy ride. Simon Vance tells his story with a somber eloquence usually reserved for great theatrical presentations. In a quintessentially British way, the result is an emotion-fueled soliloquy with a slightly mournful air that matches Clapton's own tortured notes on the guitar. A revealing look at the man behind the myth. J.S.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
