In , The Guardian attributed the creation of the cult of the guitar hero to Clapton, ranking it number seven on their list of the 50 key events in rock music history;.
Nothing is more central to rock mythology than the cult of the lead guitarist. And no one did more to create that cult than Eric Clapton.
He had already been a member of the Yardbirds before joining John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, the clearing house for guitarists, in April His two stints with Mayall saw his reputation grow to the extent that a famous graffito captured the popular appraisal of him among rock fans: "Clapton is God".
Elias Leight of Rolling Stone writes that Clapton "influenced recording techniques as well as guitar-playing technique". It seemed to me that if you wanted to get the atmosphere we were getting in the clubs, you needed it to sound like you were in the audience 10 feet away, not three inches".
Clapton then moved the microphones, with Pink Floyd's Roger Waters stating, "That changed everything.
Before Eric, guitar playing in England had been Hank Marvin of the Shadows, very simple, not much technique. Suddenly we heard something completely different.
The records sounded unlike anything we had heard before". In , Clapton was among the British cultural icons selected by artist Sir Peter Blake to appear in a new version of his most famous artwork — the Beatles' Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover — to celebrate the British cultural figures of his life that he most admires to mark his 80th birthday.
Robert Christgau , in a dissenting appraisal of Clapton's legacy, writes: "A promiscuous sideman whose monklike aura has never diminished his extravagant appetites, Clapton likes to get paid, and he's amassed a discography that for an artist of his caliber is remarkably undistinguished.
In his self-protective self-deprecation he often attributes this to his own laziness or his need for a catalyst, but it's also guitar hero's disease: like many other guys whose hand-ear coordination is off the curve, he's a casual tunesmith and a corny lyricist, and his band concepts are chronically hit-or-miss.
Clapton's choice of electric guitars has been as notable as the man himself; like Hank Marvin , the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, Clapton exerted a crucial and widespread influence in popularising particular models of electric guitar.
He became exclusively a Gibson player for a period beginning in mid, when he purchased a used sunburst Gibson Les Paul guitar from a guitar store in London.
Clapton commented on the slim profile of the neck, which would indicate it was a model. Early during his stint in Cream, Clapton's first Les Paul Standard was stolen.
He continued to play Les Pauls exclusively with Cream one bought from Andy Summers was almost identical to the stolen guitar  until , when he acquired his most famous guitar in this period, a Gibson SG , dubbed " the Fool ".
In Clapton bought a Gibson Firebird and started using the Cherry-Red Gibson ES again. Clapton used it at the last Cream show in November as well as with Blind Faith, played it sparingly for slide pieces in the s, used it on "Hard Times" from Journeyman , the Hyde Park live concert of , and the From the Cradle sessions and tour of — The was only the second electric guitar Clapton bought.
In July Clapton gave George Harrison a 'goldtop' Gibson Les Paul that been refinished with a red colour, nicknamed Lucy.
The following September, Clapton played the guitar on the Beatles' recording of " While My Guitar Gently Weeps ". Lucy was stolen from Harrison, though later tracked down and returned to him — he lent it to Clapton for his comeback concert at the Rainbow.
Rundgren restored the guitar and nicknamed it "Sunny", after "Sunshine of Your Love". In late Clapton made the switch to the Fender Stratocaster.
First there was Buddy Holly , and Buddy Guy. Hank Marvin was the first well known person over here in England who was using one, but that wasn't really my kind of music.
Steve Winwood had so much credibility, and when he started playing one, I thought, oh, if he can do it, I can do it".
In November Eric bought six Fender Stratocasters from the Sho-bud guitar shop in Nashville, Tennessee while on tour with the Dominos.
He gave one each to George Harrison, Steve Winwood, and Pete Townshend. Clapton assembled the best components of the remaining three to create "Blackie", which was his favourite stage guitar until its retirement in It was first played live 13 January at the Rainbow Concert.
One was presented to Clapton upon the model's release and was used for three numbers during a concert at the Royal Albert Hall on 17 May Pete Townshend also donated his own Gibson Les Paul guitar, with a note attached: "Mine's as good as his!
Love, Pete". Signature guitars in Clapton's honour are made by Fender and C. In Fender introduction his signature Eric Clapton Stratocaster.
