Eric Clapton is facing health issues beyond the chronic nerve problems that have affected his back and hands. The guitar great is also suffering from tinnitus, a hearing problem often caused by excessive noise. But fortunately, he’s not giving up on music. “I am still going to work. I’m doing a few gigs,” Clapton said. Clapton has drastically cut back on his touring schedule after considering retirement, but said he remains thankful for fans who continue attending his occasional shows. Clapton appeared on BBC to discuss the new documentary Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars. Set to air on Showtime on Feb. 10, 2018.
