Clapton and Winwood

Break Out Blind Faith, Hendrix at First Supergig - It wasn’t billed as a Blind Faith reunion, but Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton kicked off their three-night stand at New York’s Madison Square Garden Monday night with "Had To Cry Today". And through the course of their twenty-song set they’d cover the entire A-side of 1969’s Blind Faith — the only album by the supergroup — hitting "Can’t Find My Way Home," "Well … All Right" and "Presence of the Lord."

Whoa... Blind Faith is in my top 5 albums of all time so I know this was an extraordinary event. My good friend Frank saw one of the MSG concerts the other night and he is still reeling.

I wish I'd been at that concert, Susan. I'd be "Sitting on top of the world" ;-)

Good one, Stu. It's strictly about the music and the music-makers. Fortunately this hasn't been a splashy media event so the purists are the ones appreciating this collaboration. And they did 3 Hendrix songs. Always a treat to hear from you.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
