This weekend Eric Clapton‘s Crossroads Guitar Festival comes full circle back to Dallas Texas where the first one was held ( Cotton Bowl 2004 ). Just some of the players scheduled to appear: Billy Gibbons, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark jr, Jeff Beck, Jimmie Vaughan, Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton, Robert Cray, Sheryl Crow, Sonny Landreth, Vince Gill, James Burton and Albert Lee!
As always with the Crossroads Festivals over the years, this too raises money for the Crossroads Rehab Center in Antigua founded by Eric, himself a recovering substance abuser. Here’s a flashback to Eric Clapton and southpaw slide guitarist Doyle Bramhall II at the 2007 Chicago GuitarFest combining like EC did with the late Duane Allman as Derek and the Dominos on “Tell the Truth” . –Redbeard
