Perhaps his greatest commercial success came in 1992 with the release of the GRAMMY-winning Unplugged containing “Tears In Heaven,” written about the painful loss of Clapton’s 4-year-old son Conor in 1991.According to Rolling Stone, director Lili Fini Zanuck had access to an “extensive personal archive of classic performance clips, on- and off-stage footage, iconic photos, concert posters, handwritten letters, drawings and personal diary entries,” for the this project.”Eric Clapton: Life In 12 Bars” will premiere Feb. 10, 2018 on Showtime.Read More: Gregg Allman, Neil Young Headline New Music Friday Email Facebook Watch New Clapton Documentary Trailer watch-trailer-revealing-new-eric-clapton-documentary News Twitter last_img read more
