Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY Q&A WITH ERIC CLAPTON & DIRECTOR LILI FINI ZANUCK BROADCAST LIVE TO CINEMAS FROM THE BFI SOUTHBANK JANUARY 10 IN CINEMAS JANUARY 12 “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. The insatiable search to grow his artistic voice left fans surprised as he constantly quit successful bands, from the groundbreaking Yardbirds to ’60s super-group Cream. His isolated pursuit of his craft, and fear of selling out, served as a catalyst for his evolution as an artist. 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.
