Possible C5s at the beginning of "Why Has Love Got To Be So Sad"...I think he hits them together with Bobby Whitlock?

Total high baritone, by the way.

People don't naturally go from tenors to baritones

Even higher baritone to high baritone

Don't listen to Clapton at all so I'll go with whatever the majority says on voice type.

Very true. Either his voice matured/settled down very late, he abused the shit out of it or something like that.

Guys even in the 60s he still kinda sounded low!
Its only when he did harmonies with Cream that he really sounded any bit Tenorish
70s on he was definitely a HB

In his biography he claims his voice was extremely high when he was with John mayalls bluesbreakers
In Ramblin on my mind
He still sounds like a HB to me trying to impersonate a LT
