Michael Schumacher is an acclaimed reporter and author.From Booklist:
Guitar hero, junkie, Beatle-wife-stealer, aggrieved father, born-again bluesman--Eric Clapton's career has had enough twists and turns for several rock stars. Schumacher examines Clapton's travails and chronicles their effects. Like many of his peers, Clapton expresses personal ups and downs in his music. For instance, Patti Harrison was the inspiration for the shimmering hit, "Layla" ; Schumacher examines that connection as well as the relationship with fellow guitar hero Duane Allman that made the recording possible. Schumacher also recounts Clapton's interactions with Howlin' Wolf, Delaney Bramlett, and the 1960s psychedelic scene. He makes the point that Clapton followed rather than set fashions: Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan inspired his frizzy sixties hairdo; the Beatles inspired the psychedelic art with which his supergroup Cream surrounded itself; and Dylan and the Band inspired the laid-back sound he adopted after Cream broke up. Eventually, Schumacher brings us up to date: Clapton, once hailed as God by London subway graffiti, has come a long way. This is a necessary addition to the pop-music library. Mike Tribby
