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.

It was in the late ’60s that Eric formed a band called the Cream, with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker.  Their music featured an array of psychedelic jams and long solos. cream eric clapton
