The legendary Eric Clapton turns 71 today (March 30th), 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 (With The Yardbirds in 1992, with Cream in 1993 and as a solo artist in 2000.) Considering the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony is just days away, 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”
