Eric Clapton swaps electric guitar for cricket bat
Eric Clapton brandished a cricket bat instead of a Fender Stratocaster to play a charity match this week.
The rock legend assembled an Eric Clapton XI, which featured other musicians such as Steve Crook of Juliet The Sun, to play Bunbury Cricket Club.
Speaking to the Sun, Crook revealed that he took the opportunity to ask the former Cream electric guitar player for tips on how to progress in the music business.
"He put us in contact with his legendary former manager David English, who's been helping to guide our career," he commented.
Crook added that in return, he offered Clapton a few tips on how to improve his game of cricket, in particular his forward defensive stroke.
The rock legend apparently got 15 runs after being given this little bit of advice.
This comes after former Rolling Stones bass guitar player Bill Wyman took part in one of Clapton's charity cricket matches in the summer.Posted on 8 Oct 2009 11:39 to category : Band / Celebrity News
