Fans of blues great B.B. King have been worried for the past few days (and with good reason) as the iconic musician remained hospitalized from complications due to his diabetes.
King’s daughter Claudette said that the blues legend was suffering from dehydration caused by his Type II diabetes.
“Welcome to the Crossroads Guitar Festival,” Eric Clapton said politely, as he sat down with an acoustic guitar to kick off night one of the fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Eric Clapton is the only artist to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame three times, for his membership in The Yardbirds and Cream, as well as his solo career.
When B.B.’s left hand jumps to grab his guitar Lucille and plays a few notes, the decades melt away. Also melting: women, who screamed with each note. Add to that list: any guitar player, male or female, in the room. All of who were well aware that the way they play their instrument was influenced by what the man on the stage was doing, decades ago. So it’s a privilege to see that man still doing it today.
Eric Clapton announced that he’s bringing the festival to New York’s Madison Square Garden on April 12 and 13, 2013, with a lineup that includes blues legends B.B. King and Buddy Guy, classic rock icons Clapton, Jeff Beck and The Allman Brothers Band, country stars Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban and young guns including John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr.
