POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
E.C.: 'I just managed to convince my grandmother that it was a worth while that was something to do, you know, and when I did finally get the guitar, it didn't seem that difficult to me, to be able to make a good noise out of it' (at that time he was 13 years old)

In 1991 Clapton's son Conor died at the age of four and a half, when he fell out of an open bedroom window on the 53rd floor of a Manhattan apartment building. Afterwards he composed ‘Tears in heaven', one of his most popular songs.
