Derek killed it tonight, Clapton was crazy tasty and Warren was terrific with subtle and not so subtle fills.

PLEASE don't take this the wrong way, cause I'm not cutting anyone down but I was disappointed Warren didn't just shred, take over a solo/song and push the other two. We all know he can and I've always had it built up in my head that he would take full advantage of playing in his band with Clapton on stage and just PUSH Clapton. I don't know why I just always thought Warren would be chompin' at the bit to lay down some serious grooves with Clapton up there.

And for the record, every single part of the show tonight was perfect. Easily the best show of the run. Nailed every song, LOVED Gregg coming out solo to start the second set. No mis-cues. Just perfect.

What in the hell are they going to do tomorrow? wow!

I just wonder if Warren is biding his time....Warren is my absolute fav player...but I saw Derek here in Dallas 2 weeks back and the jaw dropped. I think Warren has it in him to turn it loose

I don't know, you have to show respect when somebody of that stature is on stage, kind iof like how Stevie ray handled it with BB on that jam on TV. Plus, Derek is the one that spent a year on tour with Eric and klnows how to deal with him, etc. It was Derek's baby tonight, having Clapton in HIS backyard as opposed to the other way around.

I'm with you Derek...and I never in a million years would think or meant to imply Warren would somehow,someway disrespect Eric Clapton. I don't think that bone is in Warren's body. Obviously Derek is more comfortable because of a year long world tour, I just would have loved to see Warren step up to plate, only for a second and just KILL it! And believe me, I LOVED his solo in Little Wing, was very happy to see him take that spot.

And this Clapton rumor has been happening since before Derek's tour with him, so I started thinking about Warren doing this 4 years ago. It's only festered and grown (in my own head) since then.

Again, what in the hell are they going to do tomorrow besides Bell Bottom Blues? and I don't think Duane even played on that, did he?

agreed, DFC. But Warren took his moments, more subtly than other nights maybe, but still jammed. It was a well balanced deal and they let Eric lead the way. He was happy too pass it off and seemed to enjoy the other guitar work, but wasn't very expressive. He did smile some, especially when he and Gregg were finishing Key to the Highway. what a finish to the show..And Susan and wareen did pretty well in the Bobby Witlock role

Agree Derek, Warren....like Derek, Warren, and most every single musicians that the 'family' shares the stage with....has so much respect for their fellow musicians. Warren seemed to show restraint tonite...as he should. 'This' happened b/c of Duana, #1, obviously...but, at the end of the day, EC showed b/c of Derek Trucks. This was really his night. And DAMN did the young man shine!!!

I'm so damn happy right now....

Tomorrow night? Hell, maybe God will show up and play cowbell? I have no idea what they do now. Only Dickey on Blue Sky could come close or top this.

On a side note...thank you Patti Boyd Harrison...w/o you, Derek Trucks might be 'Bob Trucks'?

I'll have to remember that next time people bash Trey...maybe he was showing the same respect because he looks up to the ABB in the same way they look up to Clapton. Hmm...


Anyway...can't wait to see what unfolds tomorrow.

It was perfect tonight. No one over-shadowed anyone else. DT and Clapton picked up where they left off. The duo at the end of Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad was as good or better than what they were doing on tour together. And Clapton doing Dreams just blew me away. It showed he was there to honor the ABB's stellar run.

Really psyched to see the overwhelmingly positive response to the show tonight and can't wait for more. Hope everyone is enjoying the experience.

Clapton tore up Stormy Monday on the Cream Reunion. I would expect to here that if he returns Fri night.

I just got back fromt he show. I don't know what anyone means about Warren. I thought he was way more dominant than Derek tonight. Especially in the first set but with Eric too.

I look for Warren to get his tomorrow night. Actually I guess at this time it will actually be tonight. Wait and See!

I can't believe I get to watch these shows over and over for 6 months!

If you listen to Warren's parts (or watch on Moogis)on the outro solo of WDLGTBSS, he not only plays very classy and poignant licks with Derek and EC, but he does some amazing rhythm playing. One of the things that sets really good guitar solos apart from the noodling is the rhythm that is inter-weaved. Warren killed it. He was very deliberate and focused. You can really tell from the video footage of this solo.

Yup, that was it...just seeing Eric laugh and shake his head after Derek killed a solo was worth every bit of waiting all these years to see them on stage together. Lots of energy in the Beacon last night as you can imagine.

I thought Warren had his share of highlights with Clapton onstage. I saw Eric look over at him several times. I also noticed before the encore and after the show that Warren exited the stage on Oteil side rather than Gregg's side. It appeared to me he was hunting down Eric. Warren looked like a kid again meeting one of his idols.

I was there standing in the aisle next to first row on the right side. Right after Layla Warren called after Oteill and the two of them laughed and hugged each other. It was kinda like two kids freaking out after meeting an idol except they got to play with this one. Saw Butch give a big hug to everyone. A very special event.

I thought Clapton was exquisite last night. He played beautifully. Don't forget, the songs they performed weren't Clapton songs, they were Derek and the Dominoes songs. Evey song Clapton played was either a Allman Brothers Band song, or a song he played with Duane in Derek and the Domonoes. Out of all the guest appearances, Clapton and the ABB paid the perfect homage to Duane's memory last night.

Oh by NO means am I taking anything away from Warren - he is the glue - he did an awesome job last night, but as we have seen many times in the past - it almost seems the swap the spotlight on different nights.

To me, it was Derek's night - that could also be, that I had seen him on the EC tour - and was so happy that he actually got to rip roar it up with the man, like he didn't seem to be able to in the past. Watching the show on Moogis, gives the dynamics a much more intense feel - as many times you could see Eric looking over at Derek smiling, and watching him play, and vice versa.

I believe there was much respect on that stage for each other (as there has been thus far the whole run).

Gregg kicked it first set, and loved his solo - and Little Wing brought me to my knees...

PS - typing w/one contact, and everything is a blur, so I hope there are not TOO MANY typos!)
