From his time with the Yardbirds, to Cream, to Derek and the Dominos to his solo work, Clapton has been inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame extra occasions than some other musician alive. One factor that almost everybody by no means anticipated one of many world's most iconic musicians to do, particularly in his 70s was to launch an EDM observe.

Yet, the yr is 2018, and the legal guidelines of the world not apply. On his most up-to-date launch, an album referred to as ‘Happy Xmas', Clapton launched over a dozen reworked Christmas classics. Most of them are what is anticipated from Clapton, blues and rock infused carols with a ton of fantastic guitar. Then there's ‘Jingle Bells'.
