Would you listen to Eric Clapton again? Why?
Yes, I love historical factual accounts of famous people no matter what the career, especially if it seems to be a balanced and real account, as this seems to be.
What did you like best about this story?
The journey, good and bad, it is a very interesting life, and as i listened, i was taken through a journey myself, of emotional responses to the good, bad, ugly, honest, etc.
Have you listened to any of Bill Nighy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, he is fantastic, but needs to say Steve Lukather correctly.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Behind The Face
Any additional comments?
Loved it despite being shocked at some of the content. I shouldn't be amazed at the life of a Rock Star, with all the trappings, but i was.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Enjoyed this.My only slight criticism is the sudden jump from getting his first guitar to almost skipping straight to joining the yardbirds.As a guitarist myself i would have loved to hear much more of his private practice and teaching himself to play and the hundreds and then thousands of hours sat alone learning to play the very basics up to honing your craft and finding an individual style.It does not really hit upon how much time you have to put aside just to become an ordinary guitarist never mind a great world famous one.I have recommended this to a couple of people who want to learn guitar,and was hoping it would tell them just how long it takes to learn this complex instrument as they are under the impression that you can play stunning guitar riffs like your heroes after a month or two when we all know that even the best out there have spent years learning.

A deeply revealing and honest story of Eric Clapton’s life - an incredibly touching and moving account of the real life of life in the the limelight and on the road. Beautifully read.
This is incredibly brief and barely goes into any detail around his life or his work.
It's almost as if it's a readying of his Wikipedia page
Really enjoyed the book. Certainly lived a rock n roll life style! I am a bit of a cream fan but didn't realise how much other stuff Clapton had done. Enjoyed discovering music like Delaney and Bonnie. Also interesting to hear about things like George Harrison writing Here comes the Sun on Eric's Lawn. Bill Nighy was great to listen too.
