    something to make us all happy

    Well, if you're a sad old bastard like me!

    I'm not sure how many of you can see this, but Emma and I just spent a very happy hour watching these two old buggers smiling at each other and playing soooo well:

    Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton

    Just this guy you know

    I'm sorry to have tantalised you Neil . . I suspected as much (and to be fair to the BBC I'm sure there are real copyright issues), but I think the concert is going to be on DVD in a week or so, so it should be available.

    They did most of the good Blind Faith songs:
    Can't find my way home
    In the presence of the Lord
    Had to cry today (I think)

    then they did
    Little Wing
    Voodoo Chile

    finishing with Mr Fantasy. . . but it was all so joyful, and it looked like they were really having fun.

    We've seen Steve Winwood a couple of times over the last few years, and if you get the chance, he's quite clearly on the ball, and HAVING a ball; fit and fidgety.

    I've no idea if it's available anywhere, but we saw a wonderful interview with Steve Winwood in some north london pub. at the end he sat down at the piano and spent 20 minutes on the Low Spark . . It was years ago, but I'll never forget it.

    For those in the States (and you, too, Neil): http://www.ericclapton.com/eric-clapton-news/eric-clapton-and-steve-winwood
    Put your earphones on and enjoy (Dear Mr. Fantasy and Cocaine). No video like the BBC.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the show. They are playing in the SF bay area I think this month, or next. Was wondering about the quality of the gig. I just missed seeing Eric Clapton in Osaka this past Feb. Tickets in Japan sold out in 30-mins or so.

    Fwiw, the Grateful Dead will also be playing the SF bay area soon.
