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 Stones magazine.
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."
