Happy 70th Birthday, Eric Clapton! [Video]

Eric Clapton is my all time favorite rock musician. I've been a fan since I was 12, have had the pleasure of seeing him perform 10 times in several different locales. Denver, New York city, Buffalo, Houston, and New Orleans. The New York show was on my birthday, a lifelong memory. The show in Denver was in a beautiful amphitheater, called Fiddler's Green.
