Eric Clapton, celebrating his 60th birthday, is tuning up for the first Cream concert in 36 years with Jack and Ginger – but no drugs. Hugh Davies reports
Eric Clapton has told his fans that they will notice something different about him when he returns to the stage with Cream for the first time in 36 years: he won’t forget what he is playing halfway through a solo.
We’d be in the middle of a song and not remember what it was. You just kept playing until you recalled what it was you were coming back to. – Eric Clapton
