One could make a compelling case that Eric Clapton is more popular today than he has ever been in his nearly 50-year career.
There's good reason for his popularity, however -- he continues to make amazing music that appeals to people of all ages. Furthermore, his live shows are something to behold. Certainly, as one of the greatest guitarists of all-time, that goes without saying. He has a new album (Old Sock) due in March along with the launch of a gigantic U.S. tour beginning at US Airways Center on March 14.
Recently, Rolling Stone Magazine asked readers to vote on Clapton's 10 most popular songs. With an enormous catalog, the choice was far more difficult than you'd think.
Below is a sampling of the fan voting. For the entire top 10 list, click here.
10. 'The Core'
7. 'Old Love'
4. 'Tears in Heaven'
2. 'Bell Bottom Blues'
