Discover How Eric Clapton Rock With His Equipment Tour
Check Out His Setup Before A Nashville Show
Eric Clapton is a guitar god, there’s no doubt about it.
Since the 1960s, he has inspired and influenced countless other musicians. He’s also considered a legend even among his peers. So have you ever wondered about his equipment when he goes on tour? Premier Guitar has you covered.
Before the pandemic ground live music to a halt, which Clapton fiercely disagreed with, he was still on the road. Even in his 70s, he’s showing no signs of slowing down and continues to make music and play gigs. Watch him explain his setup before a September 21 concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena below.
“I think on the early Elvis records and Buddy Holly – when it was clear to me that it was an electric guitar, then I wanted to get near it,” he told Music Radar. “I was interested in the white rock ‘n’ rollers until I heard Freddie King – and then I was over the moon. I knew that was where I belonged – finally.”
“That was serious, proper guitar playing and I haven’t changed my mind ever since,” he continued. “I still listen to it and I get the same boost now that I did then.”
