- Guitar Pick Numbers – 0003 to 0006
- Artist Name – Eric Clapton
- Date Collected – 1996
- Notes - This is a very rare pick as it was printed for a specific concert. The initials stand for:
Her Royal Highness Prince Charles Trust – Hyde Park 96
Eric worked in studio one doing a mix on some song and was only there a few days. I was a runner, and part of my duties included getting them dinner, cleaning up, etc. Well one night I strolled into Lounge 1 after dinner to clean up, and started doing dishes at the sink. Eric came in and set on the couch with his guitar and started working on a song, singing a part over and over. I turned to see if he wanted me to leave and he said, please don’t let me stop you, so I continued and did the dishes while Eric Clapton serenaded me! Priceless moment, I was impressed to say the least.
I believe I got these picks when I showed the collection to the Guitar Tech that was there. I understood he asked Eric about giving them to me as well. I have a quantity of 3 of these, identical.
