The agreement is reached and the deal is inked. Okay is the word that marks the beginning of Eric Clapton's 'life story.' The British guitarist and composer finally decided to write an autobiography and sell it to Random House publisher for $6.4 million. Inside, he will reveal all, beginning from every aspect of his personal and musical odyssey to addressing everything that is known and much that is not.
In writing the as yet untitled autobiography, Clapton will collaborate with Christopher Simon Sykes, his close friend since 1967. The book later on will be published in spring 2007, by Century in the UK and Doubleday in the US, and as an audiobook, to coincide with the release by Warner Brothers of a complete retrospective boxed set of his recordings, but also with a major world tour.
