...I hate to be a spoiler....and I'd also hate to be wrong about this...but here goes....

I went to see my friend's band play at Buddy Guy Legends tonight in Chicago. Who was there but Buddy himself. Having cocktails at the bar, talkin' with a few younger ladies. He had a shot or two.....then he hit the stage. Played 2 tunes (1 on vox & 1 on guitar/vox). Unreal. Thank God I live in Chicago.

Anyways, ALLMAN BROTHERS RELATED MATERIAL:

I was standing right next to him by the bar after he perfomed & he said 'Yeah man, tomorrow night (03/12) I'm playing with Eric Clapton and the Allman Brothers at the Beacon in New York.'

.....nobody caught it b/c nobody in the vicinity digs the Allmans (except me!!). Nevertheless, unless this is a previously released rumor then I do believe I had some privileged insider info.

If this is old news my apologies.

Cheers,

casinoboogie

Hmmm.... after looking at other recent threads my guess is that this is new info....

....or else I am completely retarded and was hearing things tonight (from Buddy Guy of all people).



By the way, Buddy TORE IT UP on 19 Yrs Old. Then picked up backing band's guitar and played a solo that would bring a tear to your eye. Beautiful.

Looks like it's going to be another late night tonight over here in the UK! (and associated utterly unproductive day at work tomorrow!) :-)

MOOGIS!

How drunk was Buddy at the time?

I guess we will know the answer to that this evening.

BTW, Clapton played a concert Tuesday night in Melbourne, Australia. I guess it's possible but it does seem like a quick turn around.

Buddy Guy, EC and Boz Scaggs, that could be one hell of a night.

If this happens, then Moogis would have paid for itself several times over at this point and it would just be day 3.

EC finished up in Australia on Tuesday according to his website, so the Beacon tonight is a possibility. He's hitting Columbus with Steve Winwood in June, can't wait!

Personally, I hope Clapton goes home to Ohio to see his family and get on US time and then shows at the Beacon next week, but I'll agree with Dorothyann and say thank God for Moogis!

well, it is possible as EC just wrapped up his Australian tour Tuesday nite.

Might be jet lagged, but who knows ...

Pretty sure he will be there next week ... on the 19th at least. But sure am glad I've got Moogis! (that Buddy/EC/Boz comment gave me shivers!)

I don't know how much I would trust a boozed up Buddy to be honest. I'm sure that he has someone who tells him where and when he needs to be at a place and he probably doesn't even pay attention much to where it is. I was thinking yesterday that Buddy probably would show up at the Beacopn at some point however. Whoever it is each night, the eacon shows are always a blast. I will see you all a week from today

Put me down as a skeptic on this. Can't imagine him being far away and doing a good # of shows then immediately going direct to NYC for rehearsal then a show. Maybe Buddy meant Eric Frampton!

This is going to be really interesting to find out what happens tonight. As of Tuesday night Clapton is done with his own touring obligations until the Winwood shows in June. So he could theoretically choose whatever Beacon date he wants and the Allmans would probably take him on any date that works for him. He said in his autobiography that the grinds of touring and his decreased tolerance to time zone changes were really affecting him in the 06-07 tour, so he might be reasonable to expect him to go to Columbus, get acclimated, then come out to NY next week. Plus, if we're assuming that he'll be playing several Layla tunes with ABB then it would be at the expense of the anniversary of the Fillmore East concerts, which seems unlikely given the Brothers' nostalgic theme for this run. So I feel it's more logical that he won't be playing with them this week.

However, this Buddy Guy comment definitely throws a wrench in that logic and my gut tells me that it's highly possible he will show up. Even if we hadn't heard about Buddy's comments, I've had a suspicion for a couple months that Clapton would play earlier than next week. WheresEric reported in January that the final Australia show was being rescheduled from Wednesday, March 11 to Tuesday, March 10 due to "a touring change" (http://www.whereseric.com/news/2009/01/eric-clapton-melbourne-australia-ma rch-2009-concert-date-change.html). Even if he were going back to Ohio for the week and showing up on the 19th/20th, there would have been no reason for him to reschedule Tuesday's show in Australia by a mere one day.

...Unless he had to jet back to New York and play with the Allman Brothers at the Beacon!

Either way, pure speculation but I just thought I'd throw out my thoughts on the matter and join in the fun of anticipation!

I am going tonight and next Thursday, so I have the Clapton rumours covered ;-)
I heard that Bonnie Bramlett might be there tonight along with Boz Scaggs. Whatever we get will be special - but Buddy Guy and Clapton would be sweet!

In response to the 'how drunk was Buddy?' question - he had three shots during one song. Three waitstaff girls came up at different times. And he already seemed pretty pretty tall at that point. It'll be interesting to see what transpires.

Or Eric Idle... I would love to see the ABB and Buddy cover the Lumberjack song.

I too was hoping for the 19th and 20th as I will be there for those dates along with the 21st, but whatever it is ...it is. Thank you Butch for Moogis as I won't miss anything.

If you've ever flown from Asia or the South Pacific
to the US you would know the flight is brutal. a guy like clapton
is more likely to get some r and r in australia, or close
by, before jumping on a plane to play a relatively historic
gig. it's gotta be important, even in ec's mind.
i'm going with the 19th.
