Eric Clapton went through many changes in the ’60s, from bands to his own personal style. Here he is in the early ’60s with The Yardbirds.
Leaving The Yardbirds, Clapton joined John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers in the mid-60s. It was during this time when Clapton earned his reputation as the best blues guitarist. One of his fans had spray painted the words “Clapton is God” in one of London’s underground subway stations.
