'Slowhand,' Eric Clapton's most successful '70s album, is being repackaged and re-released this fall, with up to 14 previously unreleased tracks on multiple formats. 2012 is the 35th anniversary of a recording that features many hits that still make his live show today. It will be available on Nov. 26.
It may not have been a studio record, but Eric Clapton's 'Unplugged' was one of the most successful releases of his career. The album, released Aug. 25, 1992, turns 20 this year and remains both a timeless representation of his career and an enduring document of a period in time for the guitar great.
He's one of the most respected instrumentalists in bluegrass music, but more often than not he's relegated to playing second fiddle (or more likely dobro) to artists like Ricky Skaggs and Alison Krauss, among others.

Eric Clapton’s vintage valve amplifier recently sold on eBay for over 2,000 British pounds -- the equivalent of about $3200 US dollars. That may sound like a lot, but since this Radford STA 25 Series III is a classic and signed and dated by a 19-year-old Clapton, it's a true collectors' piece.
Eric Clapton said he’d try to be our ‘Forever Man,’ so in honor of his turning another year old today (March 30) we’d like to be the first to wish him a Happy 67th birthday. At age 15, Clapton asked his grandparents for help in purchasing an electric double cutaway Kay guitar, and the rest is history.
