I wanted to warn you folks that live in the surrounding cities below to go
see Derek Trucks. Went to
the Shed Saturday night and saw one hellavu guitar player. His set lasted
2:20 and only cost $10 to
get in. Unbelievable!! The tones out of his guitar sounded just like Duane's
when he hit the slide. Seems
like a very, very shy player with not much communication with the crowd but
what a working speciman.
I can't even put a finger on the type of music it was but you could hear the
comforts of the Allman Bros
there most definitely. Off the Layla album they played "Anyday" (which was
no suprise) but the encore
was "Key To The Highway" and was friggin off the charts. Also in there was
"Sinner's Prayer" that Clapton
covered that had a most jazzy feel to it.

I'll be most shocked if when the Clapton tour starts the set list won't have
most of the Layla album in it.

Again, what an unbelievable guitar player and artist
