Thanks for the update, looking forward to more. I heard a rumor that Keith Richards might show tonight. If so, hope someone takes a video

Highlights -

1 - Derek and Sonny always play well off each other

2 - Taj Mahal and Keb Mo did 3 acoustic songs

3 - Warren/Derek/Gregg on Needle and Midnight Rider - acoustic

4 - Buddy Guy (also acoustic)

5 - Jeff Beck/Tal and a woman who looked like Rod Stewarts fiddle player

6 - Keith played more guitar on two songs with Eric than he did during 2 1/2 hrs in Newark

btw - no one before mentioned Gary Clark Jr. An aquired taste but most Hendrix like sound of any guitar player

Nice, Lots of acoustic stuff, Indoors w/roof on holds the sound better, Possibly the only advantage to the all day stadium Crossroads of the past. For those who hit both shows.... Which was the better night? Equal, but different?

I go with equal but different. Had an excellent time both nights, lots of great music.

Last night ended on a little bit of a technical glitch. All the guitar players were on stage for the big finale, and they each took a solo, going right down the line. Only thing was...their amps weren't coming through the pa and we old only watch and not hear. This went on for at least 10 minutes. The stage monitors must have been working, but Hard to figure they couldn't get the word to Clapton or someone on the stage.

Last night highlights were the Lobos set, with Tin Can Trust with Clapton maybe my favorite tune of the night. The surprise great set for me was the country set with Vince Gill and his band with Keith Urban and Albert Lee. Those guys boogied. Derek, Warren and then with Gregg was a great interlude. And then Clapton's band finally getting to take over and do their tunes as opposed to backing Keith and then Robbie Robertson, which I thought were 2 of the lowlights of the night..

The absurdly ridiculous female vocalist with Jeff Beck was Beth Hart.

Robbie Roberstson also did two songs with clapton. He couldn't sing in 1970; still can't. Nice version of "I Shall Be Released" which he dedicated t some departed friends. Guess he couldn't come out and say Levon

Last one of these I went to was The Garden for Ronnie Lane. They tend to be uneven, with a cluster jam at the end. Not my thing. I prefer one night of say "An Evening With" format. Looks like folks had a good time though. I'm scaling back to supporting local musicians and going for live music every week this summer.

We left right before the final song and sounds like we made a good move. The shows while great do not compare to Chicago.

I was at the "Howling for Hubert" benefit. Final jam was a lackluster "Smokestack" What impressed me was watching Clapton's final few bars; not that it was good but Warren's eyes were riveted on ERic's fingers. The rest of the artists were waltzing; Warren was still at work

This might be a slight swerve on this topic; but I wonder why, over all the Crossroads events, Robin Trower has never been invited.

Surely he fits a blues format, his style is unique, he's had hits and many great tunes, and he certainly qualifies for rock guitar god status after decades of work and a solid catalogue.

I dunno, I just think he deserves to be there. Maybe I just want to see him get more recognition. I think few deserve it more.

I really enjoyed night two-different that night one but it had a ton of highlights. I loved Derek with Sonny Landreth, Keith Urban, Vince Gill and Albert Lee rocked it out. Jeff Beck with Beth Hart was a bit tame, but I am a big JB fan so I was happy. I also enjoyed Keb Mo with Taj but these group of 30 year olds couldnt stop talking during that set. One guy asked me who was that guitar player (It was Jeff Beck!!). I thought Gary Clark Jr.s set was too long and his playing to my ears is simply painful. I could not listen to it. Eric Claptons guitar tone was much fuller than the night before and I thoroughly enjoyed his playing especially on Got to Get Better in a Little While. It was fun to see Keith Richards who actually sang Key to the Highway pretty decently. I am not sure who told Robbie Roberton he could sing and the first song he did with EC was lame.Disappointed he could not have specifically dedicated I Shall be Released to Levon; he just referred to some departed friends.I was disappointed with the finale with all the remaining guitarists (less Jeff Beck) because we could not hear anyones playing. All in all a very enjoyable two nights of music for me!!

Hey Fujirich,
I agree that it would have been great to include Robin Trower (especially at the 2 here just outside Chicago since I attended), and even though both EC and Robin have shared bassists (Jack Bruce & Dave Bronze), I just don't think they are buddies - hence, no invite.

Santana played at the first festival in Dallas. He was awesome. Hope this latest festival gets a DVD release like the others. Also, according to a review, at the end of last night, Clapton said "See you in three years." Guess that means he's gonna have another festival! It'd be nice if they came back to Dallas for another one.

After listening to Warren on Old Friend. A little more Warren would have been sweet.
