He has continued to enjoy success in his music career, releasing hit after hit. 

One of his biggest hits is 'Tears in heaven', a song he wrote after the death of his son Conor in 1991. It features on his album, 'Unplugged'. 

Clapton is currently involved in raising funds to help fight against testicular cancer. 

He took to social media to announce that the VisVim shirt he signed and wore will be auctioned to support the Cahonas charity in its fight against testicular cancer. 

This is not the first time Clapton is auctioning his stuff to help raise funds to support the fight against cancer. 

He did the same in 2020.
