For over five decades, Eric Clapton has ranked among rock's premiere guitarists---and since the early 1980s, famed music photographer Gene Shaw has been capturing great moments from Slowhand's electrifying career. More than 150 of Shaw's rare color and black-and-white photographs offer a front-row fan's perspective on many legendary musical events. Highlights include Clapton's performance at the 1983 ARMS benefit; the 1992 show with Elton John at Shea Stadium; the 2005 Cream reunions at the Royal Albert Hall and Madison Square Garden; several appearances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies; and the current Crossroads Guitar Festivals.

Shaw provides a commentary on each show, recapturing the emotionally charged moods of venues ranging from small clubs and theaters to vast stadiums and arenas. Notes on the performances include a partial band lineup and complete set list. This unique retrospective includes an Introduction by Rolling Stone writer Anthony DeCurtis and a Foreword by John "Crash" Matos, artist and designer of some of Clapton's signature guitars.
