Eric Clapton, born in 1945, is an english rock and blues musician, also well known as Slowhand. He is probably one of the most famous musicians of the last 50 years worldwide. Of course, he also won many awards and is ranked 2nd in the Rolling Stones Magazine for the 100 best guitarist of all time. On 12 march 2013, he’ll release a new album called ‘Old Sock’. Listen a song from it called “Gotta Get Over”:
Also listen to his damn awesome classic “Tears in Heaven”, a tribute song to his son Connor, who already died in the age of 4 years.
Also listen to him with JJ Cale here. Great pieces!
Dú Maroc, born in 1985 is a german rapper with moroccan roots. His single “One Touch”, featuring Jonesmann is about german childs society problems, which could for example in this song, solved by football.

Cem Karaca, born in 1945 was a turkish rock singer who died in 2004. After an military coup in 1980, many intellectuals were arested, and so he left for an exile in Germany. My friend Emre is a big fan of him – for right! Listen to his amazing song “Oh Be”, including the “most turkish” instrument, the saz, or baglama. It’s a bout his wish to come back to his homeland Turkey. But he wasn’t allowed…
Listen to Mein Deutscher Freund
Yeah, again my next own new little piece. Called it “A break from life”, thanks for the idea Emre. It’s more a chillout song, makes me dreaming!
Another guitarist this evening! Jon Gomm, a talented guitar player already starting playing the ukulele in the age of two, and playing the guitar with six years. He just uses a single acoustic guitar and creates great sounds with it. Have a listen to his nice piece “Ain’t Nobody”:
