Clapton starts at No. 1, ahead of fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Dylan and Petty.
Eric Clapton is back atop Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart (dated June 11) for the first time in nearly six years with I Still Do, which debuts with 44,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen Music. Clapton's 23rd solo studio album is his first No. 1 on Top Rock Albums since 2010's self-titled LP, which started with 47,000.
The new record also bows at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, arriving as Clapton's 16th top 10 title as a solo artist, dating to his first, 1972's History of Eric Clapton, which peaked at No. 6.
Clapton is followed on Top Rock Albums by two more legacy acts. Bob Dylan's Fallen Angels starts at No. 2 with 42,000 sold. His previous studio album, 2015's Shadows in the Night, debuted at No. 1 (50,000). The new set, Dylan's 37th solo studio release, features 12 covers. On the Billboard 200, Fallen Angels is Dylan's 22nd top 10 (No. 7), a tally begun with 1965's No. 6-peaking Bringing It All Back Home.
