Eric Clapton was an early guitar hero. He helped fuel the Brit Blues Boom, wiped out spectacularly, but earned respect as a sensitive interpreter of the Blues. Eric Clapton Discography. Eric has had a long and eventful career, but at every stage his Blues sensibilities shine through. He has worked with some of the most accomplished Blues players in the world, and pushed the boundaries in almost every case. In 2000 Eric recorded ‘Riding with the King’ with BB himself, and in 2004 he released the album, ‘Me and Mr. Johnson’ where he interpreted the work of Robert Johnson, the man who inspired so much of his playing, and he co-authored a book on Johnson in which he describes him as ‘the most important blues musician who ever lived. The following year, Cream re-formed for a triumphant one-off concert at the Albert Hall, and the same venue saw Eric guest with Joe Bonamassa in 2009.
