Just saw Clapton live

  1. It was fucking awesome, i'd read some reviews of his previous shows in the paper and they were saying that he wasnt really giving it his all, and the shows were a bit laboured, but he was on fire tonight, really awesome, and mixing it up with the acoustic and electric. His fellow musicians are all very talented also but Eric himself is such a talented guitarist, hearing him hit every note in the flesh just as good as a studio album is really something.

    Another thing is that every show previously on this tour he'd played an acoustic layla but tonight he played the electric, which is what i really wanted to see. I'm definitely going to remember this for a long time.

    So fellow blades, have you seen any other legends live?
  2. That's really cool man, I hope to catch BB King before he kicks the bucket.
  3. i wanted to see Jeff Beck in philly but that show sold out before i even got a chance!
  4. Do the Arctic Monkeys count?

  5. not as a legendary band, but YES! How were they? Awesome I'm sure.:metal:
  6. I saw Clapton in my senior year a few years ago and he was amazing and so was his backing band. Dereck Trucks and some other guitarists whose name i can't remember at the moment played with him and they were awesome too. It was one of the best shows ive ever seen.:)
  7. im seeing clapton on the 21st! I CANT FUCKING WAIT!!!!

  9. What songs does Clapton play these days?
  10. Yes best band I've seen live and I was sober, However my dream is to watch MGMT live while on acid would be epic.
  11. Oh yeah did anyone get to watch Love at Glastonbury in 03 because I would've loved to have seen them more than anything.
