In the village, Clapton's Blackie, 335 and SRV's Lenny will be on display! These are the guitars Guitar Center purchased for $2.4 million in 2004.

And so far, the weather looks great too.

I'm so excited, I can barely stand myself!

First Ever Winner in the Ernie Ball Play Crossroads Competition Announced, Takes the Stage Saturday, July 28 in Chicago


SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA (July 23, 2007) - This year, Ernie Ball partnered with the 2007 Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival to offer one talented musician the opportunity to play the Festival stage alongside some of today's most respected artists - and, after countless fans votes and prestigious judge feedback, the results are in!

Just 16 years old, the winner of Ernie Ball's first ever Play Crossroads Competition is Tyler Dow Bryant from Honey Grove, TX. Bryant will take the Ernie Ball Guitar Center Village Stage alongside the likes of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, John Mayer, BB King, Sheryl Crow, Derek Trucks and more at the 2007 Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival Saturday, July 28 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview IL. Other prizes include one Music Man guitar and one Music Man bass of his choice, a one-year string sponsorship, and an all-expenses-paid trip to/from the Festival.

Bryant has been playing the guitar since age 11, when he walked into a Texas music store and heard a man named Roosevelt Twitty playing some old Lightning Hopkins songs. "I was mesmerized," said Bryant. "While I was in the store, I fell in love with a red guitar. My dad said we couldn't afford it, so I asked him to sell the dirt bike I got for Christmas. I made good friends with Mr. Twitty, who taught me about blues."

Bryant now says his music is something of a cross between blues, funk, rock and gospel, and he's excited to demonstrate his unique style at the Crossroads Guitar Festival.

Big rumor, repeat rumor is Jimmy Page is in Chicago.

No verification of this at this time.


For those of you going and are in Chicago this week, Sonny Landreth & Friends
are Thursday & Friday, with Confirmation Albert Lee for Friday, and possibly Derek
@ Fitzgeralds- http://www.fitzgeraldsnightclub.com/

Clapton is rumored for both nights as well as Buddy Guy Legends.

chuckels, you are a lucky man. Looking forward to hearing some reviews of the extra musical treats you are getting in addition to the Crossroads Fest (and kind of kicking myself as I read all of this ... have mercy!)

Good luck, Sonny has been sold out. Albert Lee is scheduled, and friends
for tonight, and if you can get in, GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

However, Warner Music just released that Clapton playing at Buddy's is a rumor, and
won't happen. This was mentioned by Rolling Stone many months ago, and like the Beck/Page-Yardbirds and Zeppelin reunions, doesn’t seem to hold any merit.

Derek and Buddy were at Legends, late Wednesday night.

Remember for those who are not going, there is free broadcast tomorrow of Crossroads
On MSN. Thanks to Eric and team.!!!!!

Many unique pairings!! It will be the concert of the year IMO.
