Clapton & The Bluesmen

Blues is central to the repertoire of Eric Clapton whose birthday is today – Happy Birthday BTW. So we looked for and found twelve (videographed) occasions where Eric plays live with one (or more) of his blues masters or colleagues.

They are Buddy Guy, B.B. King, George Benson, Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Dr. John, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry, Johnnie Johnson, Keith Richards, Carl Perkins, Robert Cray, Hubert Sumlin, Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie Ray Vaughan

Here, they are reunited in one glorious playlist. Enjoy!
