Is Eric Clapton Calling It Quits?
Eric Clapton's 23rd studio album, "I Still Do," was released today (May 20th). The rock legend's career has spanned more than 50 years. His work appears on hundreds of albums. Eric has worked with almost everybody from the Allman Brother's Band to the Beatles, Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, and the list goes on. He's won 19 Grammy awards, and is the only 3 time inductee in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone named him the #2 greatest guitarist of all time, behind only the Late Jimi Hendrix. Mr. Clapton announced in 2013, he'd stop touring when he turned 70. That was last year. He celebrated by performing a series of concert's at London's Royal Albert Hall. Eric hasn't toured since, but took up a week long "residency" at Tokyo's Nippon Budokan. Mr. Clapton loves to perform, but finds travel grueling. He recently told the Chicago Tribune, "I kind of might be saying goodbye. But, I've been doing that for a while," hinting he may not make another album. That being said, he threatened to retire after the death of his son, Conor in 1991.
