Eric Clapton Hints At Retirement Plans

(Classic Rock) Eric Clapton appears to have taken another step towards retirement after bidding farewell to Japan. He wrote a letter to fans which appeared in the tour program for his just-completed tour.

He wrote, "I may not be able to come back again. I've been coming here for 40 years, since before some of you were born. It's the best place I've ever played. Thank you for having me."

In 2013 the then-68-year-old celebrated his 50th year as a professional musician, but admitted he was considering ending his touring career when he turned 70 - even though he still enjoyed playing live.

"The bit onstage, that's easy. If I could do that around my neighbourhood that would be great. You have guys in Texas that play their circuit and it keeps them alive," Clapton said. "But for me, the struggle is the travel." more.
