"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.

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.

"I tried wearing a hearing aid, but I heard more than I wanted to hear!"
