While few would not agree that Eric Clapton is one of the finest guitarists of all time, it is sometimes forgotten just how pivotal, influential and downright startling his work was during the 1960s. And while in following decades Clapton has remained a musician and songwriter of rare ability with moments of glory present album after album, it was during this decade that he stepped into the public eye and his awesome skills were used most creatively. As an early member of the Yardbirds, a crucial part of the Bluesbreakers, a founder member of Cream and "the one who mattered most" in the short-lived Blind Faith, EC to many really was a deity.

In this fascinating documentary his life and career throughout these crucial years is put under the microscope, and with the help of archive interviews with the man himself, exclusive contributions from friends, band mates and colleagues, rare and classic performance footage, seldom-seen photographs, location shoots and period archive, plus a host of other features, the story in question is told in a way it has never been told before.

Includes brand new interviews with musicians and performers John Mayall, Paul Jones, Neil Innes, Tom McGuinness, Chris Dreja, Top Topham, Ben Palmer, Dave Kelly and Cream producer Bill Halverson, plus expert insight from Cream biographer Chris Welch, Yardbirds biographer Alan Clayson and Uncut magazine's contributing editor, Nigel Williamson.
