I've only listened to half a dozen audiobooks so far, and this currently ranks first. Simon Vance's reading is lovely.
I love the early stuff: childhood leading into the Yardbirds and Cream: I loved looking up songs of Bluesmen that I hadn't heard before that were so seminal to Clapton. However, what makes this most memorable is his story of recovery, providing his experience, strength, and hope.
The most moving element was how he dealt with so many losses, starting with the untimely death of his son... all in sobriety.
His recovery story brought tears to my eyes.
I'm such a fan of his early work (through Derek & the Dominos) and his later work (MTV Unplugged and beyond), and had always wondered what had happened in between. The answer? The toll of drugs and alcohol made his middle (solo) work less interesting for me at the time; but this is also what makes the autobiography that much more compelling....
