Eric Clapton is widely considered one of the most influential guitarists of all time. A member of the 1960s rock and roll band The Yardbirds, he later formed ‘Cream’ and joined John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
Clapton, who played the lead guitar in 1968 on George Harrison’s ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’, became infatuated with his close friend Harrison’s wife Pattie Boyd. When she, at first, spurned his advances he co-wrote ‘Layla’, inspired by Clapton's reading of the classic Persian unrequited love story, the epic poem Layla and Manjun.
The digital painting is based on a behind the scenes photo by rock photographer Solomon N’Jie, “Been a fan of Eric Clapton since the early days with 461 Ocean Boulevard a particular favourite of mine. Eric played his Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar at this Wembley Arena gig and the image captures his unique stance and ‘slow hand’ playing style”.
