Motherless Child

The Definitive Biography of Eric Clapton

Timed for release around Clapton's 70th birthday, MOTHERLESS CHILD will be the ultimate celebration and definitive biography of one of the most influential musicians alive today. Featuring new and exclusive information from those closest to Clapton at the pinnacle of his fame, the book will uncover the truth behind some of the most famous stories in the history of modern music.

Why Clapton? Well, since the 1960s graffiti proclaiming 'Clapton is God', to his seminal work in supergroup Cream and his phenomenally successful solo career, Eric Clapton has achieved the status of bona fide living legend and enduring icon.

Now in his sixth decade in the music business, he occupies an exulted position at the pinnacle of the rock world thanks to songs like 'Layla', 'Wonderful Tonight' and 'Tears In Heaven', and for many is considered the greatest guitarist who ever lived.

Obsessively private, he has, for the most part, shrouded his personal life in secrecy. So much so, that those very few family and friends present at his 2002 marriage to 25-year-old American waitress Melia McEnery had been told they would be attending the christening of the couple's baby daughter. During the last ten years, he has given only a handful of interview and refuses to discuss his private life.

This book will chart his rise to stardom in the 60s and his unparalleled success since walking out of the poppy Yardbirds as a 20-year-old to follow his chosen path of the blues with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and later with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker in supergroup Cream. However, his success has come at a price. Once a happy well-adjusted boy, the young Clapton was devastated by the realisation at the age of nine that the woman he thought was his sister was in fact his mother, and that the couple he thought were his parents were his maternal grandparents. The discovery had lasting and damaging consequences. He never forgave his mother, Pat, who had emigrated to Canada leaving behind her son, for her abandonment of him. His treatment by his mother was also to shape his future turbulent relationships with the women in his life, including his failed first marriage to model Pattie Boyd, who was married to Clapton's close friend George Harrison when he fell for her.
This is essential reading for any Clapton fan.
