Eric Clapton – The Artist

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 1945) is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and of Cream. Clapton has been referred to as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. In his solo career, Clapton has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling musicians of all time.

Swing Low Sweet Chariot – The Song

“Swing Low Sweet Chariot is an American negro (African American) spiritual which dates back to the 18th Century. The original writer is not known. The British rock musician Eric Clapton recorded this reggae version of the song for his 1975 studio album There’s One in Every Crowd. The song serves as the anthem of the England national rugby union team.

The Rugby Player – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a rugby player running with the ball. A rugby ball, originally called a quanco, is a diamond shape ball used for easier passing. Richard Lindon and Bernardo Solano started making balls for Rugby school out of hand stitched, four-panel, leather casings and pigs’ bladders. The rugby ball’s distinctive shape is supposedly due to the pig’s bladder, although early balls were more plum-shaped than oval. The balls varied in size in the beginning depending upon how large the pig’s bladder was. Rugby league is a full-contact sport played by two teams of thirteen players on a rectangular field measuring 68 m wide and 112–122 m long. One of the two codes of rugby football, it originated in Northern England in 1895 as a split from the Rugby Football Union over the issue of payments to players. Its rules progressively changed with the aim of producing a faster, more entertaining game for spectators. In rugby league, points are scored by carrying the ball and touching it to the ground beyond the opposing team’s goal line; this is called a try, and is the primary method of scoring. The opposing team attempts to stop the attacking side scoring points by tackling the player carrying the ball. In addition to tries, points can be scored by kicking goals. Field goals can be attempted at any time, and following a successful try, the scoring team gains a free kick to try at goal with a conversion for further points. Kicks at goal may also be awarded for penalties.
