Eric Clapton Ponders If The Guitar is 'Over' In The Music Biz

Given the current climate that heralds rappers and producers as the new rock stars, classic rock legend Eric Clapton wonders if playing the guitar is "over." Clapton made the statement during a Toronto Film Festival press conference for the new movie, Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars.

Clapton was asked about the state of the instrument after being told that guitar sales are down, with young people more excited about EDM, turntables and even symphonic tools like violins and trumpets.

"I'm out of touch. I mean, I don't know what's going on," the legendary guitarist admitted, according to Billboard. "I don't know where it's gonna go either. I think anything that has a natural process will end up where it's supposed to be."
