Eric Clapton in Concert (2019)

Recommended Posts

I just came back from his today's concert here in Berlin, Germany. He still plays with the vigor and bravado of a 25-year-old whether on his Strat or Martin 000. His singing is also spot on. Simply remarkable.

That's good to hear.  I'd heard that he was having some difficulty playing due to neuropathy in his hands.  

 

Oh, I'm sure it hurts. But you can neither see nor hear his having difficulties however big or small they may be.

I saw him in Tokyo in April. if he's suffering you wouldn't know it. 2013, 2016, 2019... he gets better each time I see him.

I haven't seen him since 1982 or so.  He's still God to me.

With many of my early influences coming from Delta Blues, I heard guitarist getting animated imitating the sounds of trains and chickens. When the Yardbirds released  I'm A Man and Eric imitated the sound of an old airplane starting up at the of the song, I knew something different had just happened... and then a little later came Cream... Thanks Eric...
