After getting pulled over "for a caution" on the A3 in Surrey, England,  Clapton divulged his name, to which constable Jim Jackson said, "What do you do for a living to have such a nice car?" EC, who was piloting his Ferrari, replied, "I'm in the music business." The officer then reportedly said, "You must be doing OK then." I mean, come on. Can you image anyone simply not recognizing Eric Clapton like that? It is nothing short of travesty that one of England's national guitar treasures is not quite famous enough to get recognized during a routine traffic stop.
