Eric Patrick Clapton was born on March 30, 1945 in Surrey, England.
The band released only one studio album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.
Although released in 1970 it was not until March 1972 that the album’s single “Layla” (a tale of unrequited love inspired by Clapton’s relationship with his friend George Harrison’s wife, Pattie Boyd Harrison) would make the top ten in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
The album, which has received praise from both critics and fans alike, is often considered to be the defining achievement of Clapton’s career.
Eric used this guitar prior to joining the Yardbirds circa 1962, while he was playing in his first band called “The Rooster”.
According to Eric, he received this guitar as a gift from his grandmother: The Kay was the guitar that my grandmother bought me on the “hire-purchase” scheme.
