British musician of blues, rock and jazz.
Eric Clapton
All I am certain of right now is that I don't want to go anywhere, and that's not bad for someone who always used to run.
Clapton quotes
You never told me he was that fucking good.
Clapton
My driving philosophy about making music is that you can reduce it all down to one note if that note is played with the right kind of sincerity.




Clapton Eric quotes
Music will always find its way to us, with or without business, politics, religion, or any other bullshit attached. Music survives everything, and like God, it is always present. It needs no help, and suffers no hindrance.
Clapton Eric
Some people talk about me like a revolutionary. That's nonsense; all I did was copy B.B. King.
Eric Clapton quotes
In my lowest moments, the only reason I didn't commit suicide was that I knew I wouldn't be able to drink anymore if I was dead.
Eric Clapton
I had a Les Paul before Eric but I didn't have a Marshall. And when Eric got all of that together he was a delight to listen to. He really undertstood the blues.
Clapton Eric quotes
If it ain't Mississippi black music it ain't worth a damn.
Clapton
I think Clapton is brilliant. He's the only one who moved me. The only one who made me want to play the guitar.
Clapton Eric
Layla, you got me on my knees. Layla, I'm begging, darling please. Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.
Eric Clapton
To have ownership of something that powerful is something I'll never be able to get used to. It still knocks me out when I play it.




Eric Clapton quotes
Given the choice between accomplishing something and just lying around, I'd rather lie around. No contest.
Eric Clapton
His fingers are directly wired to his soul.
Clapton quotes
[Unplugged] was also the cheapest to produce and required the least amount of preparation and work. But if you want to know what it actually cost me, go to Ripley and visit the grave of my son.
Clapton Eric
Tell me why, must I fall in love with you?
Clapton Eric quotes
He is a great person, as well as a great musician. And this guy sings like he was born down below Mississippi!
Eric Clapton
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."
Eric Clapton quotes
I'm an egomaniac with an inferiority complex.
Eric Clapton
Would you know my name if I saw you in heaven? Would it be the same If I saw you in heaven?
Clapton Eric
You can make a Strat sound like a Les Paul, but you can't make a Les Paul sound like a Strat.
