In Marchwhile still a member of the Bluesbreakers, Clapton briefly collaborated on a side project with Jack Bruce and Steve Winwood among others, recording only a few tracks under the name Eric Clapton and the Powerhouse. During his second Bluesbreakers stint, Clapton gained a reputation as the best blues guitarist on the club circuit.
Although Clapton gained world fame for his playing on the influential album, Blues Breakers — John Mayall — With Eric Claptonthis album was not released until he had left the band for the last time in July Having swapped his Fender Telecaster and Vox AC30 amplifier for a Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar and Marshall amplifierClapton's sound and playing inspired the famous slogan " Clapton is God ", spray-painted by an unknown admirer on a wall in Islington in Clapton is reported to have been embarrassed by the slogan, saying in his The South Bank Show profile in"I never accepted that I was the greatest guitar player in the world.
I always wanted to be the greatest guitar player in the world, but that's an ideal, and I accept it as an ideal". Clapton left the Bluesbreakers in July replaced by Peter Green and was invited by drummer Ginger Baker to play in his newly formed band Cream, one of the earliest supergroupswith Jack Bruce on bass Bruce was previously of the Bluesbreakers, the Graham Bond Organisation and Manfred Mann.
Cream established its enduring legend with the high-volume blues jamming and extended solos of their live shows. By earlyfans of the emerging blues-rock sound in the UK had begun to portray Clapton as Britain's top guitarist; however, he found himself rivalled by the emergence of Jimi Hendrixan acid rock -infused guitarist who used wailing feedback and effects pedals to create new sounds for the instrument.
Hendrix's arrival had an immediate and major effect on the next phase of Clapton's career. Clapton first visited the United States while touring with Cream. Clapton used the guitar for most of Cream's recordings after Fresh Creamparticularly on Disraeli Gearsuntil the band broke up in Cream's repertoire varied from hard rock " I Feel Free " to lengthy blues-based instrumental jams " Spoonful ".
Disraeli Gears contained Clapton's searing guitar lines, Bruce's soaring vocals and prominent, fluid bass playing, and Baker's powerful, polyrhythmic jazz-influenced drumming. Together, Cream's talents secured them as an influential power trio. In 28 months, Cream had become a commercial success, selling millions of records and playing throughout the US and Europe.
They redefined the instrumentalist's role in rock and were one of the first blues-rock bands to emphasise musical virtuosity and lengthy jazz-style improvisation sessions.
Though Cream were hailed as one of the greatest groups of its day, and the adulation of Clapton as a guitar legend reached new heights, the supergroup was short-lived. Drug and alcohol use escalated tension between the three members, and conflicts between Bruce and Baker eventually led to Cream's demise. A strongly critical Rolling Stone review of a concert of the group's second headlining US tour was another significant factor in the trio's demise, and it affected Clapton profoundly.
Cream's farewell album, Goodbyecomprising live performances recorded at The ForumLos Angeles, on 19 Octoberwas released shortly after Cream disbanded. It also spawned the studio single " Badge ", co-written by Clapton and George Harrison. Clapton met Harrison and became close friends with him after the Beatles shared a bill with the Clapton-era Yardbirds at the London Palladium. Harrison's debut solo album, Wonderwall Musicbecame the first of many Harrison solo records to include Clapton on guitar.
Clapton went largely uncredited for his contributions to Harrison's albums due to contractual restraints, and Harrison was credited as "L'Angelo Misterioso" for his contributions to the song "Badge" on Goodbye. The pair often played live together as each other's guest. A year after Harrison's death inClapton was musical director for the Concert for George.
In Januarywhen the Beatles were recording and filming what became Let It Betensions became so acute that Harrison quit the group for several days, prompting John Lennon to suggest they complete the project with Clapton if Harrison did not return. Would Eric have become a Beatle? Paul [McCartney] didn't want to go there. He didn't want them to break up. Then George came back. Cream briefly reunited in to perform at the ceremony inducting them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The supergroup debuted beforefans in London's Hyde Park on 7 June Another, "Presence of the Lord", is the first song credited solely to Clapton. Blind Faith dissolved after less than seven months. Clapton subsequently toured as a sideman for an act that had opened for Blind Faith, Delaney and Bonnie and Friends. Delaney Bramlett encouraged Clapton in his singing and writing. Using the Bramletts' backing group and an all-star cast of session players including Leon Russell and Stephen StillsClapton recorded his first solo album during two brief tour hiatuses, titled Eric Clapton.
Cale 's "After Midnight". During this period, Clapton also recorded with artists such as Dr. With the intention of counteracting the "star" cult faction that had begun to form around him, Clapton assembled a new band composed of Delaney and Bonnie's former rhythm sectionBobby Whitlock as keyboardist and vocalist, Carl Radle as the bassist, and drummer Jim Gordonwith Clapton playing guitar.
It was his intention to show that he need not fill a starring role, and functioned well as a member of an ensemble. They would have three- and four-part harmonies, and the guitar was put back into perspective as being accompaniment.
That suited me well, because I had gotten so tired of the virtuosity — or pseudo -virtuosity — thing of long, boring guitar solos just because they were expected. The Band brought things back into perspective. The priority was the song. The band was originally called "Eric Clapton and Friends". The eventual name was a fluke that occurred when the band's provisional name of "Del and the Dynamos" was misread as Derek and the Dominos.
Del and Eric were combined and the final name became "Derek and the Dominos". Clapton's close friendship with George Harrison brought him into contact with Harrison's wife, Pattie Boydwith whom he became deeply infatuated. When she spurned his advances, Clapton's unrequited affections prompted most of the material for the Dominos' album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs Heavily blues-influenced, the album features the twin lead guitars of Clapton and Duane Allman, with Allman's slide guitar as a key ingredient of the sound.
The album contained the hit love song " Layla ", inspired by the classical poet of Persian literatureNizami Ganjavi 's The Story of Layla and Majnuna copy of which Ian Dallas had given to Clapton.
The book moved Clapton profoundly, as it was the tale of a young man who fell hopelessly in love with a beautiful, unavailable woman and went crazy because he could not marry her. The Layla LP was actually recorded by a five-piece version of the group, thanks to the unforeseen inclusion of guitarist Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers Band. A few days into the Layla sessions, Dowd — who was also producing the Allmans — invited Clapton to an Allman Brothers outdoor concert in Miami.
The two guitarists met first on stage, then played all night in the studio, and became friends. On 9 September, they recorded Hendrix's " Little Wing " and the title track. The following day, the final track, "It's Too Late", was recorded. Tragedy dogged the group throughout its brief career. During the sessions, Clapton was devastated by news of the death of Jimi Hendrix; eight days previously the band had cut a cover of "Little Wing" as a tribute.
On 17 Septemberone day before Hendrix's death, Clapton had purchased a left-handed Fender Stratocaster that he had planned to give to Hendrix as a birthday gift. Adding to Clapton's woes, Layla received only lukewarm reviews upon release. Despite Clapton's later admission that the tour took place amid a blizzard of drugs and alcohol, it resulted in the live double album In Concert.
Recording of a second Dominos studio album was underway when a clash of egos took place and Clapton walked out, thus disbanding the group. Allman was killed in a motorcycle accident on 29 October Clapton wrote later in his autobiography that he and Allman were inseparable during the Layla sessions in Florida; he talked about Allman as the "musical brother I'd never had but wished I did". Another tragic footnote to the Dominos story was the fate of drummer Jim Gordonwho was an undiagnosed schizophrenic and years later murdered his mother during a psychotic episode.
Gordon was confined to years-to-life imprisonment, later being moved to a mental institution, where he remains today. Clapton's career successes in the s were in stark contrast with the struggles he coped with in his personal life, which was troubled by romantic longings and drug and alcohol addiction.
He nursed a heroin addictionwhich resulted in a lengthy career hiatus interrupted only by performing at Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh benefit shows in New York in August ; there, he passed out on stage, was revived, and managed to finish his performance. His appearance in the film performing "Eyesight to the Blind" is notable as he is clearly wearing a fake beard in some shots, the result of deciding to shave off his real beard after the initial takes in an attempt to force the director to remove his earlier scene from the film and leave the set.
InClapton started living with Boyd they would not marry until and was no longer using heroin although he gradually began to drink heavily.
With this band Clapton recorded Ocean Boulevardan album with an emphasis on more compact songs and fewer guitar solos; the cover version of " I Shot the Sheriff " was Clapton's first number one hit and was important in bringing reggae and the music of Bob Marley to a wider audience. The album There's One in Every Crowd continued this trend. The album's original title, The World's Greatest Guitar Player There's One in Every Crowdwas changed before pressing, as it was felt its ironic intention would be misunderstood.
The band toured the world and subsequently released the live LP E. Was Here. Cale cover, " Cocaine ". In he performed as one of a string of notable guests at the farewell performance of The Band, filmed in a Martin Scorsese documentary titled The Last Waltz.
Clapton accepted the invitation and teamed up with Jeff Beck to perform a series of duets — reportedly their first ever billed stage collaboration. Three of the performances were released on the album of the show, and one of the songs appeared in the film. The performances at London's Drury Lane theatre heralded a return to form and prominence for Clapton in the new decade. Many factors had influenced Clapton's comeback, including his "deepening commitment to Christianity", to which he had converted prior to his heroin addiction.
On the flight over, Clapton indulged in a large number of drinks, for fear he would never be able to drink again. Clapton wrote in his autobiography: . In the lowest moments of my life, the only reason I didn't commit suicide was that I knew I wouldn't be able to drink any more if I was dead. It was the only thing I thought was worth living for, and the idea that people were about to try and remove me from alcohol was so terrible that I drank and drank and drank, and they had to practically carry me into the clinic.
After being discharged, it was recommended by doctors of Hazelden that Clapton not partake in any activities that would act as triggers for his alcoholism or stress. But it did happen. Clapton would go back to the Hazelden Treatment Center in November He has stayed sober ever since. A few months after his discharge from his first rehab, Clapton began working on his next album, against doctors' orders. Working with Tom Dowd, he produced what he thought as his "most forced" album to date, Money and Cigarettes.
Clapton chose the name of the album "because that's all I saw myself having left" after his first rehabilitation from alcoholism. Since then Waters and Clapton have had a close relationship. In they performed together for the Tsunami Relief Fund. Clapton, now a regular charity performer, played at the Live Aid concert at John F. His album output continued in the s, including two produced with Phil Collins, 's Behind the Sunwhich produced the hits "Forever Man" and "She's Waiting", and 's August.
August was suffused with Collins's trademark drum and horn sound, and became Clapton's biggest seller in the UK to date, matching his highest chart position, number 3. The horn-driven "Run" echoed Collins' " Sussudio " and other work [ how? Clapton later remade "After Midnight" as a single and a promotional track for the Michelob beer brand, which had also used earlier songs by Collins and Steve Winwood.
Clapton also got together with the Bee Gees for charity. The supergroup called itself the Bunburysand recorded a charity album with the proceeds going to the Bunbury Cricket Club in Cheshire, which plays exhibition cricket matches to raise money for nonprofit organisations in England. The s brought a series of 32 concerts to the Royal Albert Hall, such as the 24 Nights series of concerts that took place around January through Februaryand February to March Then, on 20 MarchClapton's four-year-old son, Conor, died after falling from the 53rd-floor window of his mother's friend's New York City apartment at East 57th Street.
He contributed guitar and vocals to "Runaway Train", a duet with Elton John on the latter's The One album the following year. I almost subconsciously used music for myself as a healing agent, and lo and behold, it worked I have got a great deal of happiness and a great deal of healing from music. Clapton's grief was expressed in the song " Tears in Heaven ", which was co-written by Will Jennings.
In Clapton had a relationship with singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow. The duo performed a Cream hit single, " White Room ". Clapton looked up to King and had always wanted to make an album with him, while King said of Clapton, "I admire the man. I think he's No. Clapton released the album Reptile in March Johnson and Sessions for Robert J.
Guitarist Doyle Bramhall II worked on the album with Clapton after opening Clapton's tour with his band Smokestack and joined him on his tour. InRolling Stone ranked Clapton No. Clapton's first album of new original material in nearly five years, Back Homewas released on Reprise Records on 30 August.
A collaboration with guitarist J. He invited Trucks to join his band for his — world tour. Bramhall remained, giving Clapton three elite guitarists in his band, allowing him to revisit many Derek and the Dominos songs that he hadn't played in decades.
Trucks remained on set afterward and performed with Clapton's band throughout his performances. In Clapton learned more about his father, a Canadian soldier who left the UK after the war.
Although Clapton's grandparents eventually told him the truth about his parentage, he only knew that his father's name was Edward Fryer. This was a source of disquiet for Clapton, as witnessed by his song " My Father's Eyes ". A Montreal journalist named Michael Woloschuk researched Canadian Armed Forces service records and tracked down members of Fryer's family, and finally pieced together the story. Fryer was a musician piano and saxophone and a lifelong drifter who was married several times, had several children, and apparently never knew that he was the father of Eric Clapton.
On 26 Februaryit was reported that North Korean officials had invited Clapton to play a concert in the communist state. The two former Blind Faith bandmates met again for a series of 14 concerts throughout the United States in June In Marchthe Allman Brothers Band amongst many notable guests celebrated their 40th year, dedicating their string of concerts to the late Duane Allman on A Kiss To Build A Dream On - Louis Armstrong - Greatest Hits (Cassette) annual run at the Beacon Theatre.

For much of Jackson's career, he had an unparalleled worldwide influence over the younger generation. Trying to trace Michael Jackson's influence on the pop stars that followed him is like trying to trace the influence of oxygen and gravity. So vast, far-reaching and was his impact — particularly in the wake of Thriller ' s colossal and heretofore unmatched commercial success — that there weren't a whole lot of artists who weren't trying to mimic some of the Jackson formula.
He is the hottest single phenomenon since Elvis Presley. He just may be the most popular black singer ever. A singer who cuts across all boundaries of taste and style, and color too. Through it, my music, I know I will live forever. Pop critic Robert Christgau wrote that Jackson's work from the s to the early s showed "immense originality, adaptability, and ambition" with "genius beats, hooks, arrangements, and vocals though not lyrics ", music that "will stand forever as a reproach to the A Kiss To Build A Dream On - Louis Armstrong - Greatest Hits (Cassette) notion that pop music is slick or shallow and that's the end of it".
During the s, as Jackson lost control of his "troubling life", his music suffered and began to shape "an arc not merely of promise fulfilled and outlived, but of something approaching tragedy: a phenomenally ebullient child star tops himself like none before, only to transmute audibly into a lost weirdo".
Jackson described being "mesmerized". Jackson's vocal technique was influenced by Diana Ross; his use of the oooh interjection from a young age was something Ross had used on many of her songs with the Supremes. Jackson sang from childhood, and over time his voice and vocal style changed. Between andhis voice descended from boy soprano to high tenor. It slides smoothly into a startling falsetto that's used very daringly.
The turn of the s saw the release of the introspective album Dangerous. The New York Times noted that on some tracks, "he gulps for breath, his voice quivers with anxiety or drops to a desperate whisper, hissing through clenched teeth" and he had a "wretched tone". When singing of brotherhood or self-esteem the musician would return to "smooth" vocals. Jackson had no formal music training and could not read or write music notation. He is credited for playing guitar, keyboard and drums, but was not proficient in them.
I'll take that bass lick and put the chords of the melody over the bass lick and that's what inspires the melody. Hoffman also remembered Jackson singing string arrangements part by part into a cassette recorder.
Jackson danced from a young age as part of the Jackson 5,  and incorporated dance extensively in his performances and music videos.
Jackson explored genres including pop,   soul  rhythm and blues funk rock,   disco post-disco dance-pop  and new jack swing. Pretty Young Thing ".
With Off the WallJackson's "vocabulary of grunts, squeals, hiccups, moans, and asides" vividly showed his maturation into A Kiss To Build A Dream On - Louis Armstrong - Greatest Hits (Cassette) adult, Robert Christgau wrote in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies The album's title track suggested to the critic a parallel between Jackson and Stevie Wonder 's "oddball" music personas: "Since childhood his main contact with the real world has been on stage and in bed.
InJackson co-wrote the charity anthem "We Are the World"; humanitarian themes later became a recurring theme in his lyrics and public persona. In BadJackson's concept of the predatory lover is seen on the rock song "Dirty Diana". Dangerous contains sexually charged songs such as " In the Closet ".

Jackson released " Thriller ", a minute music video directed by John Landisin In "Bad"'s minute video—directed by Martin Scorsese —Jackson used sexual imagery and choreography, and touched his chest, torso and crotch.
