2019 Grammy Award Nominee:
• Best Music Film

This documentary contextualizes Eric Clapton’s role in contemporary music and cultural history. Told through his own words, it reflects on his traumatic childhood, his difficult struggle with drugs and alcohol, the loss of his son and how he always found his inner strength and healing in music. It features extensive interviews with Clapton himself, along with his family, friends, musical collaborators, contemporaries and heroes – including late music icons B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison. Directed by Oscar winner Lili Fini Zanuck.

Eric Clapton is the only ever three-time-inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, is an 18-time Grammy Award winner and widely renowned as one of the greatest performers of all time. But behind the scenes is restlessness and tragedy. Clapton's quest to grow his artistic voice left fans surprised as he constantly quit successful bands. His isolated pursuit of his craft, and fear of selling out, served as a catalyst for his evolution as an artist.

Life In 12 Bars boasts rarely-seen footage of the various groups that Clapton has played with, starting with The Yardbirds (‘I Wish You Would’) and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers (a grainy TV performance of ‘Crocodile Walk’). There is a priceless early TV appearance by Cream, all smiles and blissed-out harmonies as they mime to their first hit, ‘I Feel Free’. And a cool Blind Faith rendition of ‘Presence Of The Lord’, filmed at their debut concert in Hyde Park, in 1969.

Rehearsal and recording sessions with Derek And The Dominos include a stretch with Duane Allman recording ‘Layla’, in which the American’s celebrated guitar part is lifted up to the top of the mix along with Clapton’s vocals. Lots of cameos and incidental performances over the years add colour to the musical story, ranging from footage of Clapton recording ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ with The Beatles, to him rehearsing a harmony vocal part, a cappella, with Chuck Berry while Keith Richards loons around in the background.
