At night 1 of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads festival, he opened the show with an acoustic set. So, on night 2 (April 13), fans showed up at the 7:30 pm start time in hopes of getting another early sighting of “Slowhand.” And indeed he did begin the show – albeit without a guitar.
“Welcome to the Crossroads Guitar Festival,” Eric Clapton said politely, as he sat down with an acoustic guitar to kick off night one of the fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
In What Have You Done For Us Lately?, we examine the recent output by legendary artists. Yeah, we’re happy when they return with a new album… but really, just how happy are we?

Eric Clapton is returning with his first album since 2010, and he’s doing so on an indie label for the first time in his solo career. Clapton’s Old Sock will be released by on his own Bushbranch label, distributed through Surfdog Records, on March 12. (That deal is just for the US and Canada; in the rest of the world, it will be distributed by Polydor).
According to a post on Surfdog Dog Records’ official website, Eric Clapton will release a new album on the indie label this spring. The album, title not yet announced, is tentatively scheduled for a March 12th release date.
Even if you don’t like Ginger Baker’s work in Cream and Blind Faith (among many other groups), the documentary Beware Of Mr. Baker is a compelling film. If you’re a music fan, you’ll enjoy hearing how his drumming influenced Neil Peart of Rush, Lars Ulrich of Metallica and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Former Cream and Blind Faith member Ginger Baker is arguably the greatest drummer in rock and roll history. Another argument could be made that he’s the most difficult drummer to deal with. A new documentary, Beware Of Mr. Baker, looks into both aspects of his life and career.
Many live performances from the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden are now available as a digital album and eventually a physical album, Columbia Records has announced.
