New York (ANI): Eric Clapton has confessed that he has started
liking his voice now that he"s old. The 'Layla" hitmaker believes
that he sounded really bad when he first started singing.
"It's taken me to be an older guy, an old man, to have an old
man's voice," the Daily Express quoted him as telling Rolling
He added: "I only liked old men's voices. As a kid, I didn't
like pip-squeaked singers. It was always someone with authority.
And for a singer to have authority, they have to have some kind of
social standing. Otherwise, it's fake. "I also suffered from a
delusion that a lot of people share... If you sing at the top of
your range, it's more expressive. So I figured out how high I could
sing. “Then I sang in that key. It's a cop-out, because it's easier
to pitch - you just stretch. To sing in a lower key is harder work.
You have to use your diaphragm more."
