Happy Birthday Eric Clapton

Noticing it was Eric Clapton's birthday today (Mar 30, 1945) I started thinking back over all the years of great music he either created or was part of of. All the changes and all the styles. Inducted three times into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In my opinion one of hardest working guitarists who's credits are well earned.

The photograph on the left; I took on assignment in 1974 in Boston, Massachusetts. ( Eric Clapton and Yvonne Elliman performing "I shot the sheriff")

Thanks to Karen; I first became aware of Eric Clapton when he was with the Yardbirds. I've enjoyed his music ever since. A musician I never get tied of listening to.

Having said that; I what to wish Eric Clapton "Happy Birthday" . Thank him for all the years of great music. And thank him for the kindness he showed me in 1974.
