Eric Clapton played a gig at the Madison Square Garden last night. At 70 years old, he still kills it which is no surprise really. He still plays guitar great and sings great too. I know he hasn’t played live in a long while but it looks like Eric is slowing down on the touring. Looking at his website, he’s got a small tour in the US and then he’ll be headed to the UK in May for the Royal Albert Hall gigs. Then he’s back at MSG and the Forum in Los Angeles in Sept.
Eric no longer tours heavily like he used to… probably because of his age but like I said, he still kills it on the stage and still plays great. From last night’s MSG show, Eric played most of his greatest hits. Here are three of my favorite songs of his in the videos above.
A lot of people don’t like Eric Clapton and think he’s overrated but I don’t think so. He’s a phenomenal singer and guitarist. Loved everything he has done over the year: Cream, Derek & The Dominoes, his solo career, etc. Clapton is a fuckin’ genius. Always loved his music.
All the Clapton haters will never admit that he’s an important music artist in rock n’ roll & blues. We all play the guitar because of him too. Admit it, right?
