About Us


Paul Ruck pays tribute to the legendary music of Eric Clapton, capturing both his acoustic and electric timeless classics.


Eric Clapton is without doubt one of the most iconic and successful guitarist of all time.

From the early days with the Yardbirds and John Mayall’s Blues Breakers, to Cream, Derek & the Dominos he went on to an illustrious solo career.

Paul Ruck’s – The Cream of Clapton is a stunning tribute.

Not only does he have an astonishing resemblance to Eric and vocal likeness, his guitar playing is a superb tribute to the legendary artiste.

Cream of Clapton

 Born on the Isle of Wight,  I started playing the guitar at the age of 10, and on leaving school I studied IT before going on to study music at college.

Since then I have performed at various venues around Europe, Africa and America both as a member of a band and also as a solo  artist

As well as having my own shows I have also performed with many well known artists and tribute acts.  

 In recent years I have worked on a number of Cruise ships both with the resident band and as a solo artist.

I am currently based in Southampton, which is an ideal base for me to be able to perform at venues throughout the South of England.

In addition to my Eric Clapton tribute, I also perform cabaret and I have a wide repertoire to suit every occasion
