Great photos! -- damn how cool is it to see those guys on the same stage -- cool that EC has played with Steve, the ABB, Cream, Derek etc in recent years -- bringing it all full circle in a way
again, killer photos -- did you have a press pass or something?

Fantastic pics, thanks. I really like the next to last one in your 1st set where they're looking at each other. Thanks too for the tip on camera settings as my concert photos have been pretty hit or miss. I need to see if I have the candlelight setting on my $200 camera.

I was at MSG and did get some good ones because I was 1st row on the side and used the railing in front of me as a tripod. Still not nearly this good.

Thanks, very good shot!

I am playing more and more old Clapton these days. Focusing on his guitar in the mix, he just blows me away.

After finally seeing him at the Beacon, it was clear to me his real status...... if guitar is a craft, he is so far beyond "Master" status, it's like who around is even really in his league, with his million miles of licks behind him.

I only realized how good Clapton is after seeing him play with Derek. I was too caught up in remembering his "pop" stuff. Watching him live I feel the same way you do.

Awesome pics!!! A great bonding experience with your son. Thank God that some of our youth are still being exposed to classic rock and roll music.

I think that anyone who says Clapton is boring really isn't listening. To each his own, I guess.

I can listen to him all day long, and sometimes I do. Eight of my top 10 most liistened to iPod tunes are from Layla. The other two are EC and Duane tunes.

It's really too bad (for us) that he and Duane didn't get to record more.


It's nice that you can relate to your boys like that.

The life is short thing works both ways. I didn't start relating to my dad until I hit 20 or so, and he was gone before I was 24.

Live with no regrets.

I say NOT also!!! Eric has always been/will always be on the top of my list of fave muscians (Steve W up there, too). Wonderful photos fretsman!!! Thanks much for sharing these and the wonderful tale of sharing this special time with your son. Made me smile big!

I hear ya, I hope you have enough good quality memories in your heart & mind of your Dad, I have none or nothing that I reflect back on with joy Our life experiences mold us and our priorities, my folks divorced when I was 3 and my childhood was a parental drunken gypsy mess, It made my priorities my kids. I have a lost relationship with my biological Dad and a distantly recognizable one with my drunken provider Dad. My first sports was high school football and I sat the bench as I sucked with no prior background and then got booted 2 months into sophomore year, My two have had me as an assistant peewee coach and constant involvement as life allowed

My son was born in ’93 and my daughter 11 months later and that put my wife out of work for 9 years (she's part time now), I worked a couple jobs and sacrificed my own early involvement to keep the bills up to date. I blinked and they grew another inch, I'm in a better place now. I have no regrets about any of it as it has made me the driven fool I am. I actually worry about them going the other way, It's funny how things work out.... When you have nothing you appreciate everything and when you have everything you appreciate nothing, I stress that with my kids not to lose that. I can only share my experiences in doses and some I must leave out completely.

I straddle the line of disciplinarian and cool Dad, I'm strict but explanatory. I was a lost teenager who was lucky to escape semi intact. I live for the future but live for today as tomorrow ain't guaranteed for anybody.

I’ve lived my life as a realist and try to see things proper. I live by a certain amount of sayings….

1. It takes all kinds to make a world.
2. Worse things have happened to better people (no matter what happened to me, there’s always someone worse off) For instance the Allman’s Dad came back for Christmas from his Armed services duty and picked up a hitch hiker who killed him, I read that not too long ago and couldn’t help but feel saddened by Gregg & Duane’s reality. Heartbreaking stuff that reinforces my beliefs.

There’s quite a few other sayings, but I’ll climb down off my pulpit now as I’m starting to babble again, To close…. Yes it can always be better, but it always be worse…….. Live full and love hard my Brothers and Sisters, Peace & Prosperity To You & Yours.




My dad was one tough dude when I was a youngster. He wasn't mean, but very strict. There was no nonsense, and he was very quick to use the stick on my brothers and I.

From what I've been able to piece together, my grandfather was very tough on him when he was growing up. I guess that's the only way my dad knew how to be with us.

As I got older, my dad really became my friend. We would even have a couple of beers together every once in a while! Those are the days I remember the best. On the other hand, my older brother never got to that place with Dad.

I'm sorry that your childhood wasn't so great, but the most important thing is that you aren't repeating your past with your kids.

Your kids are very lucky, and I hope their kids will be too.

As lolasdeb said, thanks for sharing, even we went totally off topic.

I wish you all the best.

My apologies to every one else for hijacking the thread.

He's always returned to the blues and has given us timeless tunes. He's been charitable as a human and inspiring as a musician. He still performs at a high level and is a touring trove of musical archives internal to his head. He's got some of all the 3 Kings in his fingertips and vocals ..... Albert, Freddie, and B.B are evident in his attack but the deeper history is also showing from the back woods and back porches of Alabama and other southern contributors. He still contributes to us all on what he's sucked in and passed on to countless others including Derek. He's a man that has traits given to him from a variety of life's sufferings, it's molded him. He in a sense is a walking epitome of the blues. A true living legend. I love the guy.


Well said. He's never disappointed me in concert.

Clapton's playing is about as boring as a blizzard in the summer.

They said the same thing about Jimi Hendrix just because he did'nt smash a guitar after every set.

The EC is boring thread is a total misnomer.

About 3 people out of the 10 page thread agreed with the original poster. Kinda silly........should have been deleted long ago...........

I've heard good things about this tour. Thanks for the great pics! Too bad Clapton is in a lot of them!

Steve Winwood is God!
