Eric Clapton Looks Back at His Blues Roots

Eric Clapton is shown here in New York in 1967, when he was a member of the band Cream. His first guitar, which he got when he was 13, was a steel-string Hoyer made in Germany. Clapton recalls, "It was a very cheap guitar. And most cheap guitars, as anyone will tell you who tries to play a cheap guitar ... they hurt to play. It was just such hard work, I gave up. So I started when I was 13 and gave up when I was 13 and a half," he says.

The Fool is a 1964 Gibson SG guitar, painted for Eric Clapton by the Dutch design collective of the same name. One of the world's best-known guitars, it symbolizes the psychedelic era. Clapton used the guitar extensively while playing with Cream and it was an essential element of his famed "woman tone","a sweet sound… more like the human voice than the guitar". It is exemplified in the opening and the guitar solo of "Sunshine of Your Love".
