Clapton is God”. With these words graffitied across London, Eric Clapton became the ultimate guitar hero. He is the only ever three-time-inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an 18-time Grammy Award winner, and widely renowned as one of the greatest performers of all time.
But behind the scenes lay restlessness and tragedy. Stretching from his traumatic childhood living in a “house of secrets”, to his long and difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol, and the tragic loss of his son in a heart-breaking accident, Eric Clapton always found an inner strength and healing in music.
Incredibly, Eric Clapton turns 72 years old this year, bringing with him more than half a century coursed in legendary popular musical innovation. Told through his own words and songs, as well as those of his family, friends, musical collaborators, contemporaries and many heroes – including BB King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison – 'Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars' is a moving, revealing and surprising film about one of the great artists of the modern era.
