Eric Clapton: Pilgrim

Album Review

Ol’ Slowhand’s forlorn late-90s comeback.

The nine years since he’d released his previous album of original material, 1989’s superb Journeyman, had been fraught with trauma for Ol’ Slowhand. Having overcome his 80s alcoholism, Clapton then lost tourmate Stevie Ray Vaughan and three crew members in a 1990 helicopter crash and his four-year-old son Conor in a tragic fall in 1991, prompting the heartbreaking Tears In Heaven.
