Eric Clapton is one of the greatest guitar players of all time. So naturally, he has had an amazing career.

As Jambase reported, Clapton speaks candidly about his latest record, including his collaboration with Slowhand producer Glyn Johns. And what about the legendary moniker? Clapton also reveals how he came to be called Slowhand. For all you aspiring Slowhands out there, Clapton also raps about what kind of gear he uses and his slide techniques. In a testament to the candidness of the doc, Eric gushes about his love for Shepherd’s Pie, a trait he shares with another British guitar god: Keith Richards. The documentary also contains footage of Clapton playing live in numerous locations including London’s famed Royal Albert Hall. You can watch the full documentary below.
