Clapton concert last night--awesome!
Wife surprised me and some of our friends with tix to the Eric Clapton concert last night. Robert Cray opened, and JJ Cale guested on a few songs from their new collaboration. The encore was all of them together.
Those old men can jam! The set was about 2-1/2 hours, mostly stuff from the Derek and the Dominoes days, but also some old Cream stuff and songs from the Journeyman album. He also played "Cocaine," which I thought he promised he would never play again, but my wife said Cale wrote that song, so I guess he did it in his honor.
He had a couple guest guitarists throughout the show...the one kid, Derek Trucks, plays slide guitar and tours with the Allman Brothers, and he was un-f**-in-believeable.
After the show we hit some sleazy dive bar by the waterfront for pitchers and drunken karaoke.
Not a bad way to spend a Thursday night!
