Eric Clapton w/The WallflowersPop/Rock
Clapton is a polarizing figure in rock ’n’ roll. His fame and wealth easily eclipse that of any blues guitarist, without whom he wouldn’t have a style. He can appear out of touch, as when his charitable foundation builds a rehab center on a resort island, or he jockeys for dominance during Cream’s reunion concerts. However, Clapton has made a point over his 50-year career to shine a light on his mentors, and when he keeps his ego in check, there are still few players of any age who can solo so well on an electric guitar. His latest, Old Sock, doesn’t find him stretching much (read: at all), but any Clapton show is bound to be peppered with classics like “Layla,” J.J. Cale’s “Cocaine,” or Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads,” his interpretation of which helped cement the image of the blues guitarist in public consciousness, for better or worse. Joining Clapton are The Wallflowers, whose latest album Glad All Over finds Jakob Dylan and band exploring a broad swath of rock influences with the competence and confidence of two-decade veterans.
