Money and Cigarettes is an Eric Clapton album, released in 1983. The memorable cover depicts Clapton, cigarette in hand, standing next to a melting Fender Stratocaster guitar. Eric Clapton named the album like this "because, that's all I saw myself having left."[1] The single "I've Got A Rock 'N' Roll Heart" became a big hit in the U.S. for Clapton, peaking at #18, but was relatively unsuccessful in the UK, where it did not reach the Top 50.
