The majority of Eric Clapton’s wealth comes from his involvement in the music industry.

Eric Clapton was born in 1945, in Surrey, England, and spent most of his childhood with his grandparents. Clapton’s interest in music begins at the age of 15, when he picked up his acoustic guitar and started playing it. Clapton had always preferred the blues music, a trait, which consequently transferred to his professional career as well. Clapton then attended Kingston College of Art, but as his preference had always laid in music, he was dismissed from his classes. At that time, Eric Clapton started playing at local events and as he began to be noticed by the public, he joined several bands and even went on a tour that lasted seven days with his band “Casey Jones & the Engineers”

Clapton’s rise to fame begins with “The Yardbirds” whom he joined in 1963. Clapton stayed with the band for a while, but then joined another rock band named “Cream”. It was with “Cream” that Eric Clapton went on his first tour in the United States, and reached commercial success. In the US, the band released some of the most known singles, such as “Sunshine of Your Love”, and “White Room”. However, the group did not live long, as they disbanded soon after releasing their final album together called “Goodbye”. After that, Clapton joined several other bands before releasing his first solo album in 1970 titled “Eric Clapton”. Ever since then, Eric Clapton’s solo career has been on the rise, as he sold millions of copies worldwide and has worked with some of the most known people in the entertainment industry, including Elton John, Sheryl Crow, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Phil Collins and many more. So far, Eric Clapton has released 23 solo albums, the most recent being “The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale” released in 2014.
