Washington (ANI): Eric Clapton has asked his fans to ignore his frequent retirement talk, claiming that it is nothing more than his frustration of suffering lack of sleep while on tour. The legendary guitarist insists that he can never run away from recording and performing, despite the fact that he hates the strenuous routines during concert tours.
"I retire at the end of every tour. When I'm on the road, I''m gritting my teeth and putting up with hotels and sleep deprivation and upset tummy," Contactmusic quoted Clapton as telling Rolling Stone magazine.
He added: "But when I'm off the road, the road suddenly seems like a magical idea again."The English rocker has also admitted that he still has a lot to achieve as a musician."I still haven't made what I consider to be my best album," he said.
