Clapton is awesome. Like the grafitti said "Clapton Is God". The man was in Cream, the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Blind Faitn, Derek and the Dominos and is a great solo artist. "Layla" is awesome.

50% of the songs listed here are J.J. Cale covers, and Cale hasn't even been considered by the Hall. Even Clapton himself agrees that this is a terrible oversight (this is an excellent interview if Clapton fans haven't read it yet):

http://www.npr.org/2014/07/26/334454588/eric-clapton-and-j-j-cale-notes-on-a-friendship

NPR: You're the only artist to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three different times, and so far J.J. Cale is not an inductee. Do you think that's an oversight that needs to be changed?

Clapton: Yeah, I would say it was a little bit careless. Maybe it's it's in the pipeline, but it's a shame that it would happen posthumously, seeing that he's been around all this time. I regard him as one of the roots of the tree of American folklore. There's not many people that have been able to stay the course in the way that he did and still have his finger on the pulse. When he was touring just a few years ago, I heard some live recordings where it just sounded like brand new, fresh versions of those songs. I suppose when we're fans of people, we want other people to recognize them, too. I know he wasn't that bothered, but I kind of was.
