I was lucky enough to be at both of the Clapton shows in 2009. He can come back any time in my opinion.

If I were in attendance, you can bet your bottom dollar I'd be pulling for "an evening with"...

You are so right BIGV - maybe a Chuck Leavell on keys for a couple.

Devon Allman blew the roof off the Beacon when they did One Way Out last year. It would be nice seeing him again.

While the 3/26/2009 show with the band only was better than any Clapton sit in, I confess to being a Jazz Fusion Junkie (IMOER is perhaps my favorite song in the world) and like nothing more than watching Derek (and Warren to some extent) along with Oteil stretch their fusion limits with the likes of Bill Evans, Brecker, Sco and assorted hanger ons. Makes me miss DTB (sorry TTB fans) even more.

To me the reason the ABB has thrived in old age is the addittion of new blood to the band. This allows 75 minutes of the old guard (Gregg holding down the vocal fort) and another 75 minutes of the new guard stretching out their musical chops. Since Derek is my favorite of the guitarists, i therefore enjoy most seeing the Jazz Fusion aspect he is best at.

One final note - Derek with Jimmy herring defies all comparison. Like Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan

I was very happy with the Scofield jams last year, and I hope he gets invited back. I heard through the grapevine that they called him the day of the show to see if he wanted to join, and I was very glad he did.

I agree with you so much on the many things you say in these two short paragraphs that you now have my proxy vote. Use it wisely.

Seriously, I was lucky enough to be at the 2 Clapton shows, and they were just amazing - first, a ripping, white-hot ABB show, then the Clapton portion of your evening, where he actually turns into a member of the ABB.

But that 3-26-09 show - oh MY! It was like they set out to play the most ferocious, all-in version of every song they played. In some ways it was THE best of nearly 100 ABB shows I've seen.

As to Herring, I think the Beacon '09 version of Les Brers where he sits in may be my single favorite version of that song EVER.

I suspect there may be a few nights where we get EAP front to back or some such thing. Who knows? I LOVE the Jukes Horns, because they always turn it into a party. LOVE when Ravi Coltrane or Billl Evans or some jazz drummers sit in. Bring on the Brecker!

OK. I'm officially excited. Now back to work. Thanks for the encouragement EMR!

It's funny; I was at that show. Didn't know who "Sco" was. I'm sitting there and this guy comes out who looks like my high school English teacher. I was a bit dis-interested and then it was like "wholly s**t." Not too often that Derek and Warren look impressed by their third guitar player.

So you are a jazz fusion junkie who doesn't know who John Scofield is? Well you should have been at the Mule shows in 1999 when John sat in back to back nights including playing with Jimmy Herring on several songs. Jimmy actually met Sco for the first time onstage that 1st night. Still stands as 2 of the best Mule shows ever. The Afro Blue from these shows are insane. Then in April 2000 John and Derek both sat in with Mule on Afro Blue again. Sco has sat in with Warren on several occasions since then including his riveting appearance at xmas jam. So it was nothing new to Warren especially but Derek either when Sco sat in with them. Not that it would change that they would be duly impressed anytime they have played with John.

I love 3/26/09 - BUT, for some reason, Warren's guitar sounds wrong to me. It's got a little buzz or static to it? Can't put my finger on it.

We were at the second Clapton show and I've listened to the IL of that many times since. In my very humble opinion, the show prior to Clapton joining is the best this version of the band has ever played. LMBAH and N1TRW excel. Then it gets better with EC.

As far as guests, I'm sorry, but I don't ever want to see Susan Tedeschi again. Ditto for any of the B listers. They only detract from the show for me.

A few guests over the years blend in with the band, rather than interrupt the flow of the show. Leavell obviously, but Scofield also comes to mind. He rocked last year.

Giving someone like Sco exposure to an audience that will appreciate him reflects well on the Brothers and gives people like me that didn't know him, another musical force to discover. He worked on so many levels. But for every Sco or Billy Gibbons, there are 5 Bernie Williams, John Poppers etc. I could do without.

I just feel most of the guests are a distraction and don't improve the music by their presence. There's no one I'd rather hear sing than Gregg and few guitarists I'd rather have playing than DT and WH. So, honestly, what's the point of them.

Would have loved to have seen that. Re: the junkie with "lapses" I have gone in and out of phases in my life re: music. My Jazz Fusion love was 1971 - 1977; re-awakened the last few years. Sometimes I'd lose a decade and be in another direction. The mid 80's to about 2000 when my kids were young included many lapses.

Still lament being into my straigh Jazz period b/w 1977-1985 when I lived in NYC and never seeing Talking Heads or Elvis C. at CBGB.

Sco and Herring - mind blowing

I was at the Sco show and I enjoyed it ver much as well. The one guy that I hope to see every year, because I was able to catch him at the Beacon a few years back, is Thom Doucette. I love hearing a quality harp with the ABB and it reminds me of LAFE. Bruce Willis was fun but Thom can bring it.

When Butch jacked the Moogis price for the 40th Fillmore show i though for sure we'd at least be seeing the "Ace" in the house.I bought two scalper tickets (based solely on Butch's attestation that the show was going to be special. Show was a big letdown.

Loved being turned on to Bob Margolin during the 40th anniversary run.Haven't been able to catch him since so he would be my #1 wish after Col.Bruce (who should be there 3/16, would love it if he would bring his wacky guitar)

"Steady Rollin'" Bob Margolin? I'm with you! He was part of a terrific show. I also enjoyed the second set on the 23rd that year. Bernard Purdie, Jerry Jemmot and Jimmy Smith, what a performance. Susan sounded great out there too. I always love when she comes out to sing.

Joe Bonamassa would be a great guest. Not sure if he's played with them before. I know he's played with Warren, but not sure about the other guys.

They broke up when the Pig went to rehab and Woody started a solo project.

Buddy Guy would be a great guest. I think he may have played with some of the ABB at Clapton's Crossroad Guitar Festival last year in Chicago.

See you at the Beacon on March 16
