Eric Clapton has pulled out of this week's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concert in New York after undergoing gallstone surgery.
Kristen Foster, a publicist for the guitarist, said Tuesday that Clapton was doing well and recuperating with his family in England.
The hall says Jeff Beck will replace the 64-year-old guitarist for Friday night's show at Madison Square Garden.
The Thursday lineup includes Crosby, Stills and Nash; Stevie Wonder; and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. HBO will air the concerts Nov. 29.
Clapton's Web site says he remains committed to his 2010 concert schedule.
