Clapton (Slowhand Gives another lesson in perfection)

by Joseph Terrazas

Ferroe and percussionist Ray Cooper, tossed Rythems around with consummate ease. TheyClapton-Summit-Ticket traded licks during “Sunshine of your love”.

This Concert was to good for some of us to possibly enjoy them at home off our Albums or Cd’s. It was Dreamy Perfection.There were so may examples of Clapton’s genius it was hard to single out his influences, Jimmy Page Or Jeff Beck. He started out the show with all lights on the piano coming in the drums kicking in and his powerful echoing, reverbing, on his guitar on Pretending.

SlowHand (he got the name when his guitar string would break and the roadie was up there trying to replace it, the crowd would chant for him to slow his hand so it could be fixed). He has been through Delany Bonnie And Friends who shoved him out on stage and told him he could sing, then going through John Mayall And The Bluesbreakers. And then Cream of The British Blues Crop.

He is a class act always wears a nice tuxedo, doesn’t need fancy lights. You just get him. and I believe all 10,000 people at the Summit wouldn’t have had it ay other Way.

Thank You. Joseph Terrazas

  1. You know saomething people may want to keep in mind going to great shows, i always had purchased a concert program and just put them on a shelf, but stubstory invited me to join them then as i piled up all my concert programs to refresh myself of the show i found that i had cut out the newspaper review of the event i saw and had put them into the concert programs, that really helped cause i’t’s really a little difficult to remember details of a concert from 25 years ago, so save your newspaper articles, J.T.
