Golden Beach, Fl. Most of floridians ignore that one of the most famous florida addresses is actually in our very own Golden Beach. "461 Ocean Boulevard", title of 1974 Eric Clapton's super hit was recorded at the property by the star during his residence in the area. The street address of the house was changed after the album's release due to fans flocking to the property. The house has long since been rebuilt and the street address restored.
Clapton's take on the Marley tune "I shot the sheriff", most sold single of the album, outplayed the original version, reaching the Top 10 single charts in nine countries, becoming Clapton's only number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 2003, Clapton's version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. The single was also Clapton's first single to sell well internationally, achieving Gold certifications in the United States as well as a double Platinum award in Canada.
Enjoy here some of this great part of history of Golden Beach.
