    Any fans here? Saw him at Royal Albert Hall last night .The solo on "i shot the sheriff" was worth the ticket price alone!
    I understands he's touring the States soon.....

    Hi tonyh,

    saw Eric last month playing in Frankfurt, Festhalle Germany.
    15.000 people - SOLD OUT!
    Great concert and the old guitar slinger still knows how to play the Blues.

    I've always been a fan of his. From "i feel free", "cocaine", and his MTV unplugged appearance. What an up and way down life he's had. I was most interested in his latest off-stage experience. Have you heard the story of his very recent marriage? I think that is an amazing story.

    I've been a fan of his since Cream, through Derrek and the Dominoes,...
    I saw him lie in Austin about 5 years ago.

    At the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago they currently have an exhibit called "Sweet Home Chicago", which chronicles and honors the history of Blues and Chicago's role in it. Among the displays they have EC's "Brownie" Strat from Derek & the Dominoes, which is pretty cool. I've seen him live a few times--he's a legend. What else can you say at this point?!

    Clapton is great. Been around a long time and keeps doing new material or remaking old material in fresh new ways. Awesome. He can be so laid back and restrained one minute and then just make the guitar scream the next.

    Love his version of "Don't Think Twice It's Alright" from the 30th Anniversary Tribute to Bob Dylan at Madison Square Garden back in 1992. Taped the simulcast on radio and TV, then bought the CD.

    Awesome rendition, very bluesey.

    Also some nice material on his double CD "One More Car....One More Rider" from his 2001 tour.

    "Riding With the King" with BB King is bound to become a classic, too.

    Thanks Tony. This is good news. Sounds as though he's covering his various periods which is good. Last time I saw him the song list was focused on his lastest cd release. How long was he on stage?

    Jimi rules; Clapton was the best when he was in Cream.
