Killer shot...one of the best concerts I've ever been to was Clapton and Robert Cray in Miami in the late 80's 8th row center. The memory of listening to the two of them trade licks on "Old Love" still raises the hair on my arms....thanks for taking me back.Thanks all, I believe this was around 1979. I also saw him in London when he played lead guitar for Roger Waters, 1983.
Fun photo. Lots of history there. The guitar appears to be the famous "Blackie" his #1 guitar at the time. It sold at Christie's Auction for a record $959,500 in 2004! Not bad for a guitar that was pieced together from several "scrap" strats.
Probably some Canonite at dpreview would tell him he would sound better on a Gibson... lol, less noise, more music..how'd he ever manage with that guitar?
