The 1986 Clapton release, August, was primarily produced by Phil Collins along
with Tom Dowd. August was instrumental in Clapton's comeback, featuring a
mixture of Collins influenced soul/pop and Clapton's blues/rock sound. The
studio band included Nathan East, Greg Phillinganes, Michael Brecker, Randy
Brecker, Jon Faddis and Dave Bargeron.
By the time Eric Clapton launched his solo career with the release of his
self-titled debut album in mid-1970, he was long established as one of the
world's major rock stars due to his group affiliations -- the Yardbirds, John
Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, and Blind Faith -- which had demonstrated his
claim to being the best rock guitarist of his generation.
Clapton has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo
performer and as a member of the bands Yardbirds and Cream. He is the only
person ever to be inducted three times. In his 40-year-plus career, Eric Clapton
has received a total of 18 Grammys.
