'One by one these guitars were the chapters of my life. They belong to a very well-loved family' Eric ClaptonBeginning with his blues roots and early days, Clapton’s signed limited edition documents his entire career through the tools of his trade: his guitars. Six-String Stories is told through Clapton’s own words, with background information for each instrument and archival photography spanning five decades.
Every piece in Eric Clapton's extensive collection has been photographed, showing the beauty of the design and the wear and tear often caused by years on the road.
Eric recalls the instruments he bought to emulate his heroes, the guitars with unknown origins that became their own legend, the ones that never left his side, and the legacy they left behind.
As well as sharing his previously unheard stories and unpublished photographs, Clapton has personally signed each numbered copy of Six-String Stories as a mark of his approval.
Deluxe copies of SIX-STRING STORIES are numbered 1 to 350 and signed by Eric Clapton.
Founded by Eric Clapton, Crossroads Centre Antigua offers a therapeutic, supportive and safe environment - away from the confusion of life in addiction - on the beautiful island of Antigua.'When I asked Brian Roylance to help me out with Crossroads, he asked me, 'Are you willing to go to any lengths?' I said, 'Well yeah,' not even really realising what that meant. But then I found out! The Crossroads Centre is still going, so it all had some substance, and that made parting with my guitars OK.' Eric Clapton
