The rock legend has been serving audience' ears with his melodies tunes since last five decades and has had a great friendship with many legendary players of the 70s and the 80s. He owns a place in Antigua and often catches up with West Indian batting maestro Sir Vivian Richards. Clapton has also written the foreword for one of Sir Viv's book "Hitting across the line".
