Allman Brothers: Eric Clapton Sits In!!

Images Captured from Moogis webcast

As rumored, Sir Eric Clapton sat in with the Allman Brothers Band tonight during their second set at the Beacon Theater to play a number of songs that he recorded with the late Duane Allman during the legendary Layla sessions in 1970 as Derek and the Dominos.

Once ABB guitarist Derek Trucks, named for that very same band, joined Clapton's touring band in 2006, the conversations started about whether Eric would ever sit in with the Allmans. Tonight, that dream is finally a reality. This was truly a historic night of music.

I was offered a ticket to this show but had to turn it down due to a work-related obligation. Doh!
