    I agree with Beatle Fanatic. Waay too many songs for me to limit my list to 10...sorry Deep Floyd!

    Eric's professional career has surpassed the 45 year mark now, and the man has covered many styles of music throughout, while always maintaining that blues approach to his playing/soloing. It didn't matter whether it was reggae influenced numbers like Bob Marley's 'I Shot the Sheriff', rockers like his cover of JJ Cale's 'Cocaine', or 'Sunshine of Your Love' while with Cream...the blues can always be felt in Eric's playing style. This is one of the reasons I've been such a huge fan of his music for so long.

    Here are some of my favorites...
