Geetarz Comments:

In the week of his 60th birthday, Eric Clapton joins BBC Radio 2 Host Johnnie Walker (born the same day) for his first full length interview in a number of years. To be transmitted in 2 parts, Eric recalls his 40-plus years in the music business beginning with the Yardbirds and Cream before progessing to international stardom as a solo performer.

Eric also talks openly about his personal battles with drug and alcohol addiction [Geetarz note: as with many recovered addicts, it is actually impossible to get him to SHUT UP about it!] and gives a remarkable insight to his music and his philosophy of music making.
