Eric Clapton, A Man of Taste
Eric Clapton is an average looking guitarist who has his own sound. A transcendent figure in musical history. But, this article has nothing to do with Clapton's musical talent.
For more than 40 years, Clapton has always been a fashion trendsetter. In the 60s, he wore coloured scarf, trousers, psychedelic or floral shirt, double-breasted jacket with wide lapels and gold floral. And then he wore cowboy shirts, pink suits, work boots, perms and crew cuts.
He’s even tried his hand at jewelry and clothing design. In 2004, Clapton has turned fashion designer to fund the rehabilitation centre he founded on the Caribbean island of Antigua. Clapton, who himself suffered drug and alcoholic addiction before going straight in the Eighties, has designed a special charity T-shirt for the Crossroads Centre.
Clapton often bewildering fans and the media with sudden changes in musical direction, bands, songs, guitar style, tone, physical appearance, hair, and fashion style.
