Clapton the autobiography unabridged audiobook at qbba

  1. 1. Clapton: The Autobiography (Unabridged)Eric Clapton is far more than a rock star. Like Dylan and McCartney, he is an icon anda living legend. He has sold tens of millions of records, played sell-out concerts allover the world, and been central to the significant musical developments of his era.His guitar playing has seen him hailed as "God". Tracks such as "Layla", "Sunshine ofYour Love", "Wonderful Tonight", and "Tears in Heaven" have become anthems forgenerations of music fans. Now, for the first time, Eric tells the story of his personaland professional journeys in this pungent, witty, and painfully honestautobiography.Eric was born illegitimate in 1945 and raised by his grandparents. Henever knew his father, and until the age of nine believed his absentee mother to behis sister. In his teens his solace was the guitar, and he soon became a cult hero inthe club circuits of Britain. With the foundation of the worlds first super-group, Cream,in 1966, he became a world superstar.But the rock-star lifestyle has had a darkerside. In more than 40 years at the forefront of his profession, he has twice survivednear fatal addictions to drugs and alcohol, the death of his four-year-old son, thedeaths of friends such as Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, the break-up of marriage,and the disintegration of relationships with a succession of beautiful women.Theseare the memoirs of a survivor, someone who has reached the pinnacle of success,who has had it all, but whose demons have never left him. At the age of 62, Eric isnow ready to tell his story as it is, hiding nothing, with a directness and searinghonesty that will make this book one of the most compelling memoirs of our time.ISBN: 9781415943441Author: Eric ClaptonPublisher: Books on TapeReader: Simon VanceAudiobook length: 10 hours and 35 min.Category: Bios & Memoirs > Artists, Writers, & Musicians | Bios & Memoirs > Celebrities | Bios & Memoirs > PersonalMemoirs Listen to a sample of this audiobook online at
