Speaking of Derek Trucks, I caught the show at the Beacon Monday night (a tasty jam it was, though not quite as filling as Cream ; ) sandwiched between two amazing Stones shows.) Very cool that the Allman Brothers ran thru the Fillmore East album in its entirety. Fantastic show! Derek was absolutely incredible, just unbelievable the sounds he made! I see what the raves are all about now, and after hearing live the interplay between Derek and Warren and the taking turns in the spotlight, I'm ready for the new Eric Clapton Band. Great as Trucks playing was though, for whatever reason, it didn't GET TO ME like Clapton, and the playing that thrilled me most that night was pre-show when the speakers blasted "Have You Heard." Guess as far as the guitar goes, it'll be only ole Slowhand to the end. Susan Tedeschi joined in on vocals near the end and what a revelation she was! (Until that I had been confusing her with Diana Krall.)
