TDIM - Eric Clapton quits the Yardbirds
March 13, 2013 @ 12:34 pm
The sad truth is that Buddy Guy came to perform at the Blues Festival, those who were present were blown away by his wild tricks and subtle choice of notes.
He is a bluesman who has gathered all his
inspiration from the greats like B.B.King, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and the other Chicago blues
musicians. We had the honour that year, but it only made us hungry for more. On this day in music,
Eric Clapton left the Yardbirds due to musical differences. Clapton wanted to stick to the blues, but the
rest of the members preferred to become commercial.
“Eric Clapton is God” that claim made on asbestos in the early days makes me wonder whether we’ll
be convinced of a greater power if Clapton drops by too.
