Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars - Premiere Live
The legendary 18-time Grammy Award winning performer is profiled in this documentary tribute with an additional interview of Eric Clapton on the night.
But behind the scenes lay restlessness and tragedy. The insatiable search to grow his artistic voice left fans surprised as he constantly quit successful bands, from the ground-breaking Yardbirds to ‘60s super-group Cream. His isolated pursuit of his craft and fear of selling out served as a catalyst for his evolution as an artist. Stretching from his traumatic childhood living in a “house of secrets”, to his long and difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol and the tragic loss of his son in a heart-breaking accident, Eric Clapton always found an inner strength and healing in music.
Told through his own words and songs, as well as those of his family, friends, musical collaborators, contemporaries and many heroes – including BB King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison – ERIC CLAPTON: LIFE IN 12 BARS is a moving, revealing and surprising film about one of the great artists of the modern era.
