Clapton

1976 EC. Discovered 1976 Mar. 7 at the Harvard College Observatory at Harvard.

Named in honor of Eric Clapton (1945- ), singer, composer and guitarist extraordinaire. He is the most remarkable bluesman ever to come out of England and his rock career has spanned more than 25 years. In the mid-60s, a graffito on a brick wall in London proclaimed: 'Eric is God'. He remains a musical megastar today, and is probably best known for the rock classics 'Layla' and the ballad 'Wonderful Tonight'. (M 16249)
