New documentary looks at life and career of musician Eric Clapton

The Mayo Clinic defines tinnitus as "the perception of noise or ringing in the ears" and usually effects 1 in 5 people, with the elderly more likely to suffer from it.

"I'm doing a few gigs", the 72-year old guitarist said in an interview with Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2 while discussing his documentary, "Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars". Say it ain't so! "The only thing I'm concerned about now is always being in my seventies and now being able to be skilful".

As how his health is affecting his playing, Clapton explained that he has to "get on the bottom of the ladder every time I play guitar, just to tune it..."

"I am still going to work. I am going to do a show at Hyde Park [British Summer Time Festival] in July", he said.

Eric still plans to put on some fantastic shows, and he wants fans to come and appreciate his music. I am hoping that people will come along and see me for more than that [because] I am a curiosity.

Clapton said of the film, "It's very hard for me to sit through because it goes on so long about the hard part of my life, [but] I think it's important for people to see that there's a happy ending".

Clapton also revealed in 2016 that he has nerve damage which has affected his ability to play guitar. Two years ago in June 2016, Eric admitted that the nerve damage was making it more hard to play guitar.

In his 2007 autobiography, Clapton described a 20-year drug and alcohol addiction that he said saw him spending about US$16,000 a week on heroin in the 1970s.
