The reunion for which intrepid rock fans had longed for forty years became reality when Eric Clapton joined Steve Winwood at Madison Square Garden in February 2008…rewarded with muscular, time-tested versions of “Had to Cry Today”,”Presence of the Lord”, and “Can’t Find My Way Home” as well as some of the best of Traffic, Derek and the Dominos, and Clapton and Winwood solo catalogs! Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood guest here In the Studio.
Cream’s breakthrough album “Disraeli Gears” only nine months earlier tee’d up the English/Scottish trio’s June 1968 third release, “Wheels of Fire”, for some impressive numbers. It went almost immediately to #3 sales in the UK and a bonafide #1 in the US, becoming the first double album to sell over a million copies. Eric Clapton & the late Jack Bruce are my guests.
Eric Clapton‘s mid-Eighties trifecta of studio albums, starting in 1985 with Behind the Sun followed by August, peaked in Fall 1989 with Journeyman. Thirty years on it has aged remarkably well, a combination of strong songs, superb players to support him, and a sympathetic yet discerning producer the likes of which we had […]

It finds the acclaimed musician successfully in recovery after more than twenty years of substance abuse, experiencing a spiritual rebirth that can only be described as miraculous; his musical career at an all time high; and then the most […]
1989 album “In Step” by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, just the mere facts are impressive. “In Step” was the Texas trio’s fourth studio album, but their first after Vaughan’s collapse and near death from substance abuse.” In Step” won a Grammy Award, one of six Vaughan amassed, while racking up the best sales of Vaughan’s lauded career because of “The House is Rockin'”,”Crossfire”, “Tightrope”,”Let Me Love You Baby”, and the stunner “Riviera Paradise”. Yet the significance of In Step as a musical statement of intent cannot be told by mere sales or awards. It can only be assessed by the friends who knew Stevie Vaughan best (Eric Clapton), the musicians who inspired him first (Buddy Guy, the late Doyle Bramhall), the players who supported him before and after recovery(Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon), the musicians who in turn Vaughan inspired (Joe Bonamassa ), and the biographer who tried to capture his lightning in a bottle (author Joe Nick Patoski). They are all In Step here In the Studio.
