Layla


:lovedup: It would be a dream come true to hear that song performed live, just fuck paying $100 for it. I really really wanted to go to the show in LA but I can't afford that

From what I've heard, Clapton's been playing Layla acoustically on this tour. It's nice, but to me, the song is best when electric.

I saw Eric on the Clapton/Winwood tour. It still stands equal to Sleep as the greatest concert I've ever seen, for its perfect sound, extreme godliness of Clapton's playing, and the sheer level of intensity. (Seeing the two do Voodoo Chile was a religious experience) It's amazing how much crazier he is with his soloing now in his 60s than he was way back, dude's been letting loose like never before. Catch him now before he inevitably croaks.

I saw Clapton with Roger Daltrey and was not that impressed. He has great music, but live I was bored. Daltrey was awesome though. I also walked away feeling ripped off. Daltrey played for 45 min and Clapton for 80. Thats not worth $70, imo.

Clapton/Winwood would have been INSANE. Im sure they played a buncha Blind Faith material.

I'm sorry to hear that man! I paid about 70 for my ticket too, but I got a solid 2 hours for my concert.

They played about half of the Blind Faith album if I remember right. The rest were split between Clapton and Winwood solo songs.

And Rush is truly any better?

The most overrated guitarist ever, I only like his Cream period.

I knew someone was going to bring up Rush. Their first six albums are heavier and more metal minded than anything Clapton has ever done.

I would like to see him again (saw him in 1985 and 1988) and was pulling front row behind the pit at Universal as recently as this weekend but just couldn't justify dropping that kind of cash.

Forever Man is my favorite Clapton song, and he does not even play it.

You might not be too pleased if I told you he played it on every date of the Clapton/Winwood tour would you?;)

Clapton annoys me significantly less than some of the bands people have posted in this section, but yea, he doesn't belong here.

Yes, they are.

All three of them are 100 times better musicians than Clapton. You can discuss about the lyrics & Geddy's vocals, but NOT their talents IMHO.

When the latter plays his Rickenbacker I go :drool:
