Synopsis
"Clapton is God." These words graffitied, across London in the 60s, served as the foundation of the concept of "guitar hero", applied to this Brit who had the talent and the skills to give an electric voice to the sounds of the blues pioneers, first with John Mayall, then with Cream (also considered the first "Supergroup" ever), with Derek & The Dominoes and finally with a solo career that only now seems to be reaching its end. Narrated by Clapton himself, the film documents a life full of musical triumphs, excesses and personal conflicts.
