With the Strat neck?
I remember seeing pictures of that.
Clapton is GOOD but for me, THIS is a thousand times better in every way:

The famed Crossroads was recorded on the 68 final US tour, at that time Clappo was favouring a single PUP Firebird. I would stake my SG collection that's what he's playing on Crossroads.
I believe I'm sinking down.
czech this out: Clapton on lead guitar with his ES-335, Lennon on Lead Vocal with his Epiphone Casino, Keith Richard on Fender Bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums. Host:
And just look at how young they all are...

As great as Clapton was in the Cream I prefer his style now. He adds to the song and doesn't try to overpower it. His restraint is admirable. He is one of the few guitarists that can play whatever he hears in head. It must be hard not to just go crazy and take over a song rather than adding to it and making the totality of the song better.
quoted for truth.
Here's the interview with the Winterland roadie and the SG story.
The Firebird wasn't purchased until April so I think we just have to accept an SG can sound good.
Mind you he sounded pretty mean on the 335 too.
Much of the playing in the 335 video reminds me of the "EC was here" version - which I don't mean in a bad sense. I believe this is the Clapton album I have listened to most. One thing that he does much better than many other guitar players is to make music. The best moments of listening to Clapton is when focusing on the complete band performance rather than focusing only on the guitar track. "461 Ocean Boulevard" and "Theres One In Every Crowd" are also ranked high on my list. Very much also thanks to the contributions of Radle and Oldaker. Great band work.
To a great extent I find that he has managed to let the music he makes develop and follow his personal development and interests in life.
A comparison with the Freddie King performance posted by Kevy Nova to my ears clearly shows that even after so many years of playin' the blues and trying so hard - he is a still white man.
tpa...there are a few....white--brown---black-- there are a few that color does not effect "mojo" E.C. I like to think is one of them......wish I was.....but I am not, Rock on E.C. rock on.
Not a bit more or less than what I wrote, and not meant to be an offensive statement. E.g. not supposed to mean that he is a bad man for that.

Is this 1997?
1994/1995 I think
