Cream: An Interview with Eric Clapton
Jim Delehant, Hit Parader, March 1968
WE KNOW very little about Eric Clapton, the human being. We do know that he has a good heart, he loves being alive he's very articulate like many British fellows raised on the King's English, he's in his early twenties, perhaps twenty-three, and he has a nice smile. Biographically, a very unclever "press release" says... "There cometh out of that place called Ripley, a youth of artistic mean" which could imply he was born in Ripley, which may be in England. Was he an art student? That seems to ring a bell.
