Musician Eric Clapton performs at The Forum on September 18, 2017 in Inglewood, California.

The legendary Eric Clapton turns 73 today (March 30), and out of all of his accolades, he’s the only musician to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times. (The Yardbirds in 1992, Cream in 1993 and as a solo artist in 2000.) 

Considering the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is just around the corner, we figured we’d honor Slowhand by taking a look at some of his best performances at the famed ceremony over the years.


1993 – Cream Performing “Sunshine Of Your Love”

1994 – With The Band Performing “The Weight”

1999 – All-Star Jam Performing “Let It Be”

2000 – Performing “Further Up The Road”

2005 – With B.B. King and Buddy Guy Performing “Let Me Love You Baby”
