Synopsis:

Eric Claptonand#8212;aka "Old Slow Hand"and#8212;is one of the greatest guitarists of all time and the only musician inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on three separate occasions. In his long career with such supergroups as The Yardbirds, Cream, and Blind Faith, as well as a solo artist, he has received countless awards. To mark his illustrious 50-year career, Eric Clapton Treasures celebrates the legendary musician through stunning rarely published photographs and 20 items of removable facsimile memorabilia, including posters, tickets, flyers, and signed photographs.

Eric Clapton Treasures gives readers a front-row seat (and backstage pass, too) to Clapton's unparalleled career.

Synopsis:

David Bowie fashioned a glittering career fueled by the spirit of reinvention. Not only did he make more than 20 groundbreaking albums (and is recording again), he also created vivid characters that took his music into the realm of theater. From Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke, Bowie's shifting personas had a profound cultural influence. If a picture says a thousand words, this lavishly illustrated volume pays tribute to Bowie's lasting legacy in the art scene.
