Eric Clapton Cancels Shows Due to Back Pain

Eric Clapton has cancelled a series of upcoming shows due to severe back pain. Those shows include dates in Vienna, Austria and Stuttgart, Germany. He is currently with specialists who will be able to better determine the course of treatment.

Clapton’s team explains, “He was looking forward to these concerts and regrets that he is not to be able to perform for the fans. He would like to apologize for any inconveniences these cancellations may cause and would like to thank the fans for their understanding. All tickets can be returned to the Box Offices for refund.”

I’ve had 3 back surgeries and can say that I know the pain he must be dealing with. I pray that his situation turns out better than mine did.

How fuckin’ awesome is he? Seriously.
Not from a technical standpoint. There are better guitarists out there – but he has the ability (like BB King and also Carlos) to say it poigniantly with, like, one note. A true “feel” player.
