Eric Clapton ingresará al Salón de la Fama del Blues 2015

“The Blues Foundation has announced the 2015 selection of three living performers to be inducted into its Blues Hall of Fame: Eric Clapton, Tommy Brown and Little Richard. Eric Clapton is the first British musician to be inducted. The foundation said he was tapped for “for his many musical achievements as well as for his role as a popularizer of the entire genre. He brought the blues to audiences in his native Britain and throughout the world, illuminating the work of the original blues artists who inspired him.”

The Blues Foundation also noted that “Clapton identified with the power and uplifting spirit of the blues from his early days as a guitarist, and amidst forays into other genres has always remained a blues devotee. At the age of 18, as a member of the Yardbirds, he played guitar on a Sonny Boy Williamson LP, and soon did sessions with bluesmen Otis Spann and Champion Jack Dupree, not to mention the influential work he did with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream and Blind Faith. In between his many subsequent albums and world tours, he played on Howlin’ Wolf’s London Sessions and recorded with several of his early guitar heroes, including B.B. King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker and Otis Rush.”
