Eric Patrick Clapton was born March 30th, 1945, in Ripley, a small village in Surrey, some thirty miles outside London. His mother was young and unwed, and he was raised by his grandparents. Early rock & roll stirred his spirit: Years later he remembered hearing recordings by Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly and, especially, being impressed by a television performance featuring Jerry Lee Lewis. His playing on Five Live Yardbirds and other recordings by that band had been distinctive and powerful, but it was Mayall’s 1966 album Blues Breakers that announced the arrival of a truly incendiary talent. His supercharged, bravura playing paid tribute to influences such as Freddie King and Otis Rush, often quoting their recordings, but even then Clapton wasn’t content to merely imitate.

Clapton then does what he first did best with a 12-minute rendition of "Blues Power," co-composed with Leon Russell and released on his first solo album. Here, Clapton really gets down, using his voice and bluesy guitar playing for an extended electric jam in the middle.

Night after sold-out night, Bonamassa opened up the engines, completely blowing the doors off deep cuts like Led Zeppelin’s Tea for One, Cream’s SWLABR and Jeff Beck’s Let Me Love You Baby -even venturing into Seventies and late-Eighties territory with Clapton’s Motherless Children and Pretending.

Clapton was replaced in the Yardbirds by Jeff Beck, and later by Jimmy Page. Mayall’s band were uncompromisingly hard core blues-men, and their ‘Beano’ album established Eric as a young guitar talent every bit the equal of Freddie King or Buddy Guy.
