    Graarrrggh I want the vinyl!

    EDIT: I like "Looking at the Rain." The reviewer is right; it deserves to be with the other tracks.

    Live stream of the Sandy Benefit concert on Wed. Stones, Roger Waters, McCartney and others Eric might guest with outside his own set.

    Or maybe he'll surprise us an guest with Chris Martin, Alicia Keys, or Kanye West. :p I mean, he's done relatively surprising collaborations before.

    Outside of Cream, when's the last time Clapton performed live in a trio? Has he ever?

    I was gonna say that he did at 24 nights, but then I remembered that he usually does four-piece with a keyboardist (which he also did in 2011). Still, he was the only guitarist. :p

    Old, but very good. My faves by St Sanders are Ozzy and The Eagles. And Coming to Alderaan.

    I really enjoyed Andy Summers' autobiography. It was primarily about how he built his musical career around trying to not sound just like Eric Clapton.

    Looks like he took it himself using an ipod touch.

    I wonder if "Still Got the Blues" will be his acoustic version from when he performed it in 2011 or if he will actually go electric. His 2010 album was enjoyable enough, but it was sorely lacking any guitar muscle even in comparison to Back Home and Reptile.

    and it actually has a decent solo...

    (double post)

    Edit: On 2nd listen, a nice Delaney & Bonnie feel with the organ (Winwood?) and the female backing vocals.
