  • Eric Clapton says tinnitus is causing him to go deaf

"Then I have to go through the whole threshold of getting calluses back, coordination".

"Life in 12 Bars" follows the life of the 72-year-old British guitarist from childhood to worldwide stardom, through his struggle with drugs and alcohol and the 1991 death of his four-year-old son.

Speaking during a recent interview with BBC Radio 2, Clapton said his biggest concern was being "proficient" now he's in his seventies. I mean, I'm going deaf; I've got tinnitus.

One of music's greatest living legends revealed that his job is getting harder and harder on January 11. I'm doing a few gigs.

Clapton also suffers from "peripheral neuropathy, which causes weakness and pain in hands and feet" and he "said in June 2016 that the nerve damage has affected his ability to play the guitar", according to Us Magazine.

"I mean, I am hoping that people will come along and see me [for reasons] more than because I am a curiosity".

"I know that is part of it, because it's unbelievable to myself that I'm still here".

Despite the challenges with his hearing and his hands - two integral functions for any guitarist - the legendary musician remains determined to continue playing live concerts. The musician admitted that he found much of the movie hard to watch because it focused so intently on "the difficult part of my life", but he said it also shows, "There's light at the end of the tunnel".

"I think its important for people to see that there is a happy ending, its like a redemption concept". I am going to do a show at Hyde Park (British Summer Time Festival) in July.

Clapton: Life in 12 Bars is out now in the UK. "If you're gonna...see it, be prepared for a heavy ride".
