Eric Clapton started the Crossroads Guitar Festival series both to showcase guitar players and to benefit a drug treatment center called the Crossroads Centre. All three of tonight's clips are from the most recent festival in 2010.
The first tune may stir some memories for you if you're around my age. Comin' Home was released as a single by Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett in 1969. This is Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes.
This is the first performance by Gary Clark Jr. I've posted here. It may not be the last. He's all of 28 and may be around for a while yet. This is Bright Lights. The familiar face giving him some help on guitar is Doyle Bramhall II.
This seems like an appropriate way to close: Eric Clapton performing Robert Johnson's Crossroads. That's Steve Gadd on drums and Chris Stainton on piano. Have a good weekend.
