Eric Patrick Clapton is an English Guitarist born in Surrey, England, to Patricia Molly Clapton, a 16-year-old unmarried girl, and Edward Walter Fryer, a Canadian soldier who served during World War II.

Before launching on a solo project, Clapton established the music trio “Cream” as well as “Blind Faith” in the 1960s.
