Even rock legend Eric Clapton can’t resist Bieber fever.

During a recent interview with the Associated Press, Clapton revealed that it was his three daughters (ranging in age from 11 to 14) who introduced him to the tween sensation; while Clapton was initially “a little disappointed that they were talking about him,” he changed his mind once he heard the music.

“It’s got some substance now,” Clapton added as way of explanation.

Clapton joins a growing group of music heavy-hitters who have copped to enjoying Bieber’s tunes — most notably, Kanye West, who said that Bieber’s ubiquitous hit, “What Do You Mean?” was his favorite song of 2015.
