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 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".
