At night 1 of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival, he opened the show with an acoustic set. So, on night 2 (April 13), fans showed up at the 7:30 pm start time in hopes of getting another early sighting of “Slowhand.”
Who’da thought that “Old Sock” would be a term of endearment?
Clearly, it was a departure for the Kennedy Center Honors. Now in it’s 35th year, the ceremony started out by paying tribute to cultural icons like Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald and Tennessee Williams. In recent years, rock has been represented more and more at this prestigious event, with Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Elton John and Bruce Springsteen all collecting the Kennedy Center medallion. But past ceremonies probably never got as loud as this year’s.
Last night, their guests were Eric Clapton (for a cover of Muddy Waters’ “Champagne And Reefer”) and Florence Welch, of the British band Florence & The Machine, for “Gimme Shelter.”
Last night (November 25), The Rolling Stones played their first arena concert in six years at England’s O2 Arena. The band played a two-hour-plus set, spanning their 50 year career.
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.
“I went to see the Yardbirds play at this really stuffy student black-tie event at Cambridge University. The singer, Keith Relf, got quite inebriated and was being really punky. He was really staring down the establishment and put on a magnificent rock and roll performance. He was knocking things over and shouting obscenities at the audience. I really enjoyed myself.” — Jimmy Page
The Who is preparing to go on a tour where they’ll perform their 1973 classic, Quadrophenia, in full. But while they’re on the road, Pete Townshend’s musical collaborator, Rachel Fuller, is preparing a symphonic rendition of the album.
