The Blues in good hands.
Eric Clapton joined John Mayer on stage during his Summer Concert Series performance for ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” on 20th July 2007! This concert took place in New York City’s Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan. John performed a few songs before ending the set with Eric for “Crossroads”.
“Cross Road Blues” (more commonly known as “Crossroads” is a blues song written and recorded by American blues artist Robert Johnson in 1936. The English legend, Eric Clapton with Cream popularised the song as “Crossroads” in the late 1960s. Their blues rock interpretation inspired many cover versions and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included it as one of the “500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll“. Rolling Stone placed it at number three on the magazine’s list of the “Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time” in recognition of Clapton’s guitar work.
The American singer-songwriter has performed with Clapton quite a few times. Even though it’s extremely rare to witness these two artists of such brilliance and calibre on the same stage together, you can almost see the mutual respect they have for each other. Check out the video below!
