One of the greatest intro lines in the blues, in my humble opinion.

Clapton's all-star Ginger Baker Tribute. Several drum sets, half a dozen guitar players, musically not outstanding, but not bad on the other side.
On some songs like I feel free EC has really problems (looks like his fingers will not follow him), on others he is brilliant.

He's alright for 75. They're all getting a bit weary.

Here he misses his cue on 0:48 for example, but I think it's because he doesn't usually do I feel free and song does feel like it moves on at that point.

Ronnie Wood on White room, on the other hand, is an abomination. He takes that solo? Okay. Although I'm not so sure that's the way it was meant, since Clapton does start playing the solo and then leaves it for Ronnie after the first note.

If he did just this one song, he'd still be a legend in my book.

Not blues I'm afraid.
But a song full of feeling and emotion, sung and played with great sensitivity.

Shame the end of the video wasn't properly trimmed and there's a few notes kick in of something else.

One of my favourite live DVD in my collection is one of Christy's - Live at Barrowlands in Glasgow - not available for some time which i find baffling. The audience participation in choruses and some of the songs is breathtakingly good.
His mix of social commentary, political commentary and heartfelt songs give a great mixture.
A man not afraid of upsetting the establishment.
In 2007, he was named as Ireland's greatest living musician in RTÉ's People of the Year Awards (Raidió Teilifís Éireann).

Yes, especially the 3 guys! That's a Blues I could do a collab - slow enough and just pentatonic :lol:

This guy (on the keys) from Germany is a comedian, usually doing a very weird sort of comedy. He plays a lot of instruments and he is really good...
The guitar guy isn't bad either. Scroll a little until it starts.

You're right about the 3 guys! Can't beat a good slow blues, and that one is very good. :clap:

:pray: Fantastic footage! Deep Blues from the heart. Son's biography is incredible, Buddy is still with us.
Thanks for posting!

Buddy also had some fun with a young guy from the UK in 1969... :lol:
