One by one these guitars were the chapters of my life - Eric Clapton.
Beginning with his blues roots and early days, Eric's limited edition book documents his entire career through the tools of his trade: his guitars. SIX-STRING STORIES is told through his own words, with background information for each instrument and archival photography spanning five decades. Nearly 300 pieces from Eric Clapton's guitar collection, sold across three Crossroads auctions, are brought together here for the very first time. SIX-STRING STORIES presents a 'family tree', making connections between Clapton's instruments and amps, and placing them in the chronology of his career. Every instrument has been photographed, showing the beauty of the design and the wear and tear often caused by years on the road. The guitars are also shown in play, with performance shots of Clapton taken by over 80 of the world's best photographers, including David Bailey, Terry O'Neill, Dominique Tarlé and Lord Snowdon.
The Crossroads Centre is still going, so it all had some substance, and that made parting with my guitars OK – Eric Clapton
SIX-STRING STORIES can be ordered online from Genesis Publications at ClaptonBook.com or in person at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden, April 12-13th.
