Rođen 1945 u Engleskoj pod pravim imenom Eric Patrick Clapton.  Šezdesetih godina prošlog stoljeća zvali su ga "Eric Clapton, The God" Pisac tekstova i gitarista grupa Yarbirds and The Cream. Prema Rolling Stones listi najvećih gitarista svijeta zauzima 2 mjesto, a prema Gibsonu zauzima 4 mjesto.

Sredinom 60 godina Clapton napušta Yardbirdse i posvećuje se blues glazbenom pravcu. Pridružuje se grupi John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. Prema glazbi koju svira nazvali su ga nadimkom "Slowhand".
