Genesis Publications Announces "Eric Clapton Six String Stories"
Genesis Publications has announced a forthcoming book, "Eric Clapton Six String Stories: The Crossroads Auction Guitars 1999-2011." The signed limited edition book will benefit The Crossroads Centre, which was founded by Eric Clapton. The book documents Clapton's career through the tools of his trade. A quote from Clapton on the guitars featured in the book states, "Each individual guitar seems to have this in-built virtuosity of its own ... it can take you another 10 miles down the road. Once it stops, it's time to move on to the next one. My career has been divided up with these instruments." Although a publication date has not yet been announced, those interested can register their interest via genesis-publications.com to receive a free brochure by postal mail and be among the first to order.
