There is a lot of good solid information on this site:

http://www.blueslessons.net/

I dont think you will find a more comprehensive site.

for a book, I would recommend "Blues you can use" by John Ganapes
he has a web site here:

http://bluesyoucanuse.com/

And finally, very usefull site with lots of info and especially dedicated to Clapton's blues

http://www.12bar.de/

That should keep you busy for a while.
