Eric Clapton

The only triple inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – as a member of both The Yardbirds, Cream, and also as a solo artist – Eric Clapton, is a legendary British blues and rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter.

Clapton launched his highly successful solo career in 1970. “I Shot the Sheriff” topped the charts in 1974, with many of Clapton’s songs from that decade making it into the Top 20 charts. Beginning in 1977 with the triple-platinum album Slowhand and its smash hit single “Lay Down Sally,” Clapton began an amazing run of gold and platinum successes that continue to this day. In 1988 Clapton released the double-platinum Crossroads; his 1989 album  Journeyman sold over two million copies and earned him a Grammy for his single “Bad Love”. 

Clapton reached new heights in 1992 with the release of the soundtrack to the motion picture Rush and its Grammy-winning Top 5 single “Tears in Heaven.” That same year, Unplugged, recorded live on the MTV program, hit No.1 for three weeks straight, selling 15 million copies worldwide; he earned six Grammy Awards that year. 

Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Clapton made his presence felt in the realm of film soundtracks, with contributions to such movies as Back to the Future, The Color of Money, and the Lethal Weapon series. Yet his greatest soundtrack success came with “Change the World,” the endearing smash hit from the John Travolta film Phenomenon.
