Praised as one of the year's Top Documentaries by the National Board of Review, ERIC CLAPTON: LIFE IN 12 BARS is a moving, revealing and surprising film about one of the great artists of the modern era.

The film explores the 72-year-old British musician's career on and off stage and is told by those who've known him best; among them stars such as BB King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison. Tinnitus is often a symptom of a more severe condition, such as hearing loss.

"I am still going to work. I mean, I'm going deaf, I've got tinnitus, my hands just about work", Clapton said on Radio 2. "The only thing I'm concerned about now is always being in my seventies and now being able to be skilful".

Claptonis due to perform in London's Hyde Park on July 8, 2018.

"I understand that is part of it since it truly is wonderful to myself personally I am here" Clapton is the way from the only stone protagonist afflicted with migraines.
