Clapton – Beck

Beck’s fantastic stint at Ronnie Scotts gave everyone a great insight into his wild techniques and undeniable guitar control – some of the glass finger slide work was definitely on the money. Visibly digging & impressed by Beck’s fat, rootsy licks and solo, Clapton – never one to over stay his welcome – dials in some classic runs.

It’s a shame they don’t cook up a blues album together because if this is anything to go by, it could be something special; there’s a great energy here and it doesn’t descend into self indulgent guitar hero histrionics. There’s life in the old sock yet.
