MONTCLAIR, NJ—Following the first volume of Eric Clapton, Day by Day, the equally detailed and illustrated Eric Clapton, Day By Day: The Later Years, 1983–2013 (Backbeat Books, $39.99), by Clapton expert and veteran music journalist Marc Roberty, will be hitting shelves October 29. Roberty has once again delivered a comprehensive account of Clapton’s career, this time focusing on the major events of the last few decades.

Volume 2 picks up where Volume 1 left off, covering Clapton’s comeback after years of drug and alcohol abuse. Highlights include the ARMS shows, which saw the three Yardbirds guitarists onstage together for the first time since the sixties, as well as the Cream reformation shows of 2005, Crossroads guitar festivals, and the Clapton/Winwood reunion in 2008. It’s Clapton like you’ve never seen him before—Roberty’s dedication to his subject matter is evident in this thorough and candid presentation. Readers will discover an extensive list of tour dates, set lists, and recording sessions, along with quotes and narrative from the engineers, producers, and musicians who were involved.

Complete with rare photos and unreleased songs, Eric Clapton, Day By Day: The Later Years, 1983–2013 is a wonderful way to mark the 50th anniversary of Clapton’s performing career and solidify his legacy as one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll guitarists of all time.

Marc Roberty (London) is an award-nominated author, music journalist, and music historian. Roberty’s articles have been featured in Guitarist magazine, Rolling Stone, Best (France), Mojo, The Financial Times, The Independent, and Where’s Eric! Roberty also did film and audio research for the Eric Clapton Anthology, a documentary.
