Wish I was there, reports have been phenomenal about how good Jeff was, then Eric took the whole show up a notch with 2 Muddy Waters songs "You Need Love" and "Little Brown Bird."

And in front of only 200 people!!

Can’t wait for this DVD.

A couple years ago we had a Cream reunion, then we had a D&D heavy tour with Derek . . . any whispers about some Yardbirds activity?

Page is warming up with Led Zepplin. Who knows? A Page/Clapton/Beck collaboration would be REALLY cool.

I have a Video of Jeff Beck absolutely blowing Eric off the stage during a jumpin' version of Bobby Blue Bland's "Further on up the road". This is from "Monty Python's Secret Policeman's other Ball" and is out of print. The Video has a copyright protection that prevents my Sony RDR-VX500 from duplicating it on DVD. But it is awesome. When Beck finishes soloing, Clapton throws up his hands as if to say "How do I compete with that"?

Thank God for that track. The rest of the music bores me to tears and as much as I like Monty Python i find the comedy lacks also.

They put three - four Sting songs and only one Clapton and Beck tune. They should give you a refund.

I believe the DVD release added more Clapton/Beck to the mix. cause we ended as lovers and I think Crossroads.

---------------
Clapton is definitely playing out his career again. the Cream stage, D&D stage and now the Blind faith era. I think he may skip the Yardbirds era though.

Don't leave out the upcoming "Blind Faith"-ish reunion with Winwood.

EDIT: Well, ok, CanadianMule beat me to the "post" button.

Yep, I wonder if next might not be a reunion of Clapton's Bluesbreakers band. John McVie certainly ISN'T busy with Fleetwood Mac anytime soon...Hughie Flint isn't busy with McGuiness Flint...and Mayall is ALWAYS busy doing something, but seems to have time for any of his alumni when they call.

I think that it is telling that this new supposed "career spanning" retrospective CD set doesn't include any Yardbirds material. So, Clapton may not be acknowledging that portion of his career in his recent march through the past. Considering the Yardbirds that made the most "noise" in the US was the Jeff Beck era, I think Clapton doesn't feel he needs to revisit that era. Which is a shame, really, since the recent/current Yardbirds lineup is pretty good and I think Eric would have a blast with them.

Ever since George Harrison died, then Billy Preston, EC has been on fire. He missed being there when George died, since he was on Tour, and did an incredible job honoring him with "The Concert For George". This DVD should be in everyone’s library IMO.

Now EC has reformed Cream, Derek and The Dominoes with Derek Trucks, and now Blind Faith. In fact he had so much fun with Steve Winwood at recent Crossroads Festival, they are planning more projects as time goes on.

He has already appeared with John Mayall several times most notably at his 70th birthday party in 2003. The Yardbirds, well he did limited tour with Beck & Page as tribute to Ronnie Lane in the 80’s, so I think that one is covered.

Look for EC to maybe make a surprise appearance at upcoming Arhmet concert in London perhaps with Bill Wyman, since Cream originally was in lineup. There is of course always a possibility with ZEP, since he has jammed with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant many times, but highly unlikely IMO.

I perceive it as Eric "sharing the wealth" of his popularity, monetary wise, for the benefit of Jack, Ginger and Stevie. I think that's very noble, and yes, we are Truly the beneficiaries of his generosity. The one thing that puzzles/bothers me is why he didn’t include Bobby Whitlock in the process. My guess is that it has to do with current lifestyle choices, or they had a falling out. But with the Jeff Beck set, then Steve Winwood playing with EC doing the Blind Faith stuff, and of course with Derek, If I never saw another live show after x-roads II, I would be forever content. What a day.

I can see the Cream reunion helping out Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, who have not had an illustrious recording/touring career in some time. But Winwood had some huge pop hits following the Traffic years. He continues to record and tour, and surely he collects handsome royalties from his catalogue. I think this Blind Faith reunion is something Clapton genuinely wants to do. Clapton was probably too effed-up to remember most of the few months that Blind Faith existed. I see this as a chance to make some great music while both he and Winwood are still more than capable of making great music.
Man, I'm psyched for MSG in February!!

As mentioned, I think the passing of Eric's two friends and the near-death liver transplant that Jack Bruce had just a couple of years prior to the Cream reunion sparked Clapton's energies. Since there COULD be a Cream reunion, Eric went for it, since they'd had such a good experience at the HoF induction. Since there couldn't obviously be full-on Dominoes or Blind Faith reunions, Eric's just coming as close as possible. I read somewhere that Eric did get together fairly recently (within the last 5 years, I believe) with Whitlock and it didn't end real well.

After the Winwood/Clapton shows, will Eric's next project be a get together with Jamie Oldaker, Dick Sims, George Terry & Marcy Levy?

You raise a good point about Winwood, however those hit's you refered to were 20 years ago, you would think he's probably doing fine today. But there is a big difference between the payday at a side stage at Summerfest compared to selling out MSG. Mainly from my viewpoint, on a broader scale the exposure Steve Winwood gains from Crossroads and the MSG shows will put him "Back In The Highlife" again. Not that he was ever out of it to those who are paying attention.
I'm sorry to read about your Whitlock comment. Next to seeing Cream and Winwood at Crossroads, I would love to hear Bobby singing Dominos tunes. A buddy of mine, Brofan, saw Bobby in Austin a while back, and said he sounded great.

Actually the Whitlock/Clapton reunion was on “Later with Jools Holland TV Show in 2000. They had a lot of fun together, and there were some gret musical moments, so it
went really well.


“In an April 2006 interview with The Tennessean, Bobby spoke of finally finishing a song he began writing with Eric in 1971. I sat down at the piano and this song poured out like water pouring off of a rock.” The song was “Dear Veronica”, one that Bobby and Eric had worked on in May 1971 while working on the Domino’s second album. At the time, Eric wanted to write a song about Hollywood actress Veronica Lake. Bobby continued. “I have carried the seed of that song around all these years. When I sat down at the piano, the complete song came out. I sent it to Eric to get his approval, and he said, ‘I’d forgotten about that song. Congratulations.’ So I started out the year with a brand new Bobby Whitlock / Eric Clapton song.”

Again there is no animosisty between the two, just mutal respect. Hope that helps.

Eric is very fluid these days, lets just see how the Winwood collabrations go, and that will determine what is in store for Eric’s next project.

Next world tour is supposed to be 2009. Their might be a surprise or two before that.

From royalties alone, I believe Bruce & Whitlock do rather well. Whitlock makes nice $$ from...believe it or not, All Things Must Pass.

Don't know about Winwood or Baker.

Guess it depends on what you read. I recall reading the article you quoted, but I also later read an article where there was a quote from Bobby where he said something to the effect that "some people just won't check their egos at the door". That's where I got the "didn't end well" part...which totally contradicted the article I'd previously read. So, again, the ol' "depends on the point of view" comes into play. I'd really like to believe the former, that Bobby & Eric left things on a good plane. Thanks for recalling the "good article".

Since when do we believe everything we hear or write. That Later with Jools Holland show was great, you could see how much fun they were both having together..

During the last Cream shows at MSG, all you had to do was watch EC's body language, after the first night, and could see he would rather have been some where else, he was not having fun. And to date no more Cream Shows, after they were being scheduled.

Does anyone know why Clapton and Mark Knopfler haven't been seen together in a while? There was a period of time many years ago when the two seemed to be playing together all the time. I saw Knopfler in 2001 or 2002 and he was playing great. I've always thought it was weird that he wasn't invited to either one of the Crossroads festivals.

Very good question!!!

Chuckels seems to know just about everything about Clapton, so he might be the one to answer this.

Knopler was Clapton's second guitar player almost 20 years ago on one the best concerts I ever saw. He toure that year in Clapton's band after Eric was jamming with Dire Straits at many shows in London.

No crossroads invite tells you something going on between these two!!!!

I remeber when Knopfler toured with Eric, I'm pretty sure it was 1990. I had 2nd row from the stage, my buddy ushered at the old Spectrum in Philadelphia and hooked me up. Clapton was touring to promote Journeyman. Great concert.
