Clapton's Guitar Tech

Here's a short interview with Jim Dickson, Eric Clapton's guitar tech of 30 years. He talks all about what it takes to be a guitar tech and the relationship with the artist that's required. Also interesting was how much the tech is required to think ahead before a particular gig or tour so he can anticipate the needs of the artist before even the artist knows them. There's a few good Clapton stories as well.

If you want to read a lot more about guitar techs and being on the road, check out some of the excerpts from The Touring Musician's Handbook on my website.

Why did this relationship end?

Good question. Why did this "thing pass?"....

Don't know myself. He never states why in this interview or any other that I've seen.
