She is No Longer In Contact With Her Father

The world came to know about Eric’s daughter when she attended the funeral of her half-brother, Conor Clapton, (child of Eric with Lory Del Santo) who fell off from the 53rd floor of an apartment. 

It was Ruth who helped her father to come over the grief of Conor. In Eric’s 2007 autobiography, he has mentioned, 

“Ruth has been a tremendous support. I had no idea how much power a child could have on adult life, how much it can make you feel valid, unique and strong.”

Eric’s constant reply was, “No.” He also explained that as a recovering alcoholic, his philosophy tells that, in a sense, he feels happy to have his son. 

Because late son gets him sober in one way. 

The reality was an existence that had allowed him to stop drinking or taking drugs, and Eric had spent four years with him as a sober human being and still am, Eric shared. 

The artist also says that the one thing that balances out is the gratitude for the fact that he had that moment and time with him but also expresses that it would be great if he had more time to spend with his dad. 

Besides that, had the music helped Eric heal from all these obstacles? To which Eric explains that he began to write and play immediately. 

He also shared about having a guitar that he had for a long time. Eric, at that time, wasn’t making any albums, but he just wrote. 

Eric shared how it had worked to calm him down. It worked as a tranquilizer for him and pointed it out as a safe anesthetic. 

Eric feels that’s the main reason why music is there, which had absolutely worked for him. 

Apart from all other views from the people, what is important for him is that he honors his son’s memory, and that is the actual way Eric feels about his son. 

Also, Eric claims that he wants his son to be remembered, and obviously, Eric also remembers his son through good music and also a nice song.
