Norman chronicles Clapton's life and music from the Yardbirds and Cream through his solo career. Extremely knowledgeable about the rock music scene, Norman tells Clapton's story with verve and insight. I have also read Clapton’s own autobiography (ghostwritten) and have seen the documentary Life in 12 Bars.

Among music book scribes, Philip Norman stands near the top in terms of influence and skill

Among music book scribes, Philip Norman stands near the top in terms of influence and skill. His 1981 Beatles tome Shout! set the stage for the modern rock bio (as well as dirty up a bit the clean image of the Mop Tops with tales of their pre-fame days). And while it does sound like Slowhand is more about the highs and lows of Clapton’s personal life and struggles than his music, Norman does get into that as well – though not nearly as much as a fan might want. Clapton eventually reclaimed his life, sobriety, career, and has made a new family for himself with a wife and young children.

The guitarist’s disastrous personal life, rather than his music, is to the fore in Philip Norman’s new biography

The guitarist’s disastrous personal life, rather than his music, is to the fore in Philip Norman’s new biography. The profound gulf between Clapton’s outburst and his musical inspiration remains a puzzle – was Memphis blues giant Howlin’ Wolf, with whom the guitarist cut an album in 1970, also a coon ? – but it is one unexplored in Slowhand, the latest biography from Philip Norman to document what he calls, peering through the prism of 1960s rockocracy, music’s tiny topmost echelon, meaning primarily the Beatles and Stones. Clapton’s outburst, never recanted, remains a stain on the character of one of British pop’s great figures.

Marc Roberty, author of this impressive and enjoyable book, quotes actor Dan Aykroyd's summarization of Eric Clapton: "The Bluesbreakers, Blind Faith, Cream, Derek and The Dominos -- Ladies and gentlemen, who was the cohesive force behind all these powerhouse bands? He's been called a blues man, he is synonymous with the words electric guitar. Very simply, very finely -- Mr. Eric Clapton!"
"Slowhand" traces Eric Clapton's life story from his first guitar, a Spanish Hoya purchased for him by his grandparents in the mid 1950's, to his spectacular "24 Nights" at the Royal Albert Hall in 1991. The narrative deftly highlights major events in Clapton's life, as well as his constantly shifting and changing musical direction. Swept up by the psycheadelic sixties, propelled into the 1970's on a wave of drugs and unrequieted love, lost to the world through two years of isolation, Clapton skipped from wave to wave following his brave musical instincts. And though he helped change the face of rock music during his years with Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek and the Dominos, he never strayed too far from his blues roots. During his solo years in the 1970's, he incorporated reggae and country into his style, with songs like "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Tulsa Time". Along the way, he recorded songs by blues legends such as Robert Johnson ("Crossroads Blues"), Willie Dixon ("Evil"), and Jimmy Reed ("Ain't That Lovin' You").

Roberty includes discographies from each phase of Clapton's career, as well as listing his tours and session appearances. He includes information about guitars and instruments Clapton used. And he lists major videos Clapton has appeared in. The book is also full of photographs and art reproductions. Not a single page is dull.

Eric Clapton received six Grammys in 1992, for his "Unplugged" album. In 1994 he released a long awaited blues-only album. And in 1998 he continues his musical journey with a new album, appropriately titled "Pilgrim". "Slowhand: The Life and Music of Eric Clapton" traces his formulative steps toward the pinnacle he has achieved, today.
