Great musician that I thought I saw at Winterland in San Francisco ..... but it was Muddy Waters I was thinking of. Some of this new music we are left with really turns my stomach and it's so sad to see old timers go.
B.B. King passed away
Clapton has been known to use his platform and large fanbase to promote King, whom he believed didn't sustain the recognition the blues legend deserved in the twilight of his career. "If you're not familiar with his work, I would encourage you get an album called B.B. King Live at the Regal, which is where it all really started for me as a young player," Clapton says in his tribute.
